This week, Breakfast Club is partnering with the student organization Lawyers Opposing Violence Everywhere (L.O.V.E.). Come to an informal discussion of this new and dynamic student organization. Coffee & bagels will be provided by Barb City Bagels.

Afterward, join L.O.V.E. until 4:00 p.m. in the Riley Courtroom for a day dedicated to learning about and addressing the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault. The Safe Passage Domestic Violence Shelter will lead our discussion throughout the day and will provide us with the necessary knowledge and tools to become successful legal advocates. Topics will include Domestic and Sexual Violence 101, Rape Myths and Rape Culture, Trauma and How it Impacts Behavior, Understanding Professional Roles on Victim Response, and more. Lunch will be provided!
