#MeToo, public education empower victims to seek out BrandonU’s Sexual Violence Support Office

July 12, 2018

Carla Navid, the Co-ordinator of Brandon University’s Sexual Violence Support Office, told the Brandon Sun that growing awareness of her role and the #MeToo movement have encouraged more people to seek help. “That tells me that people are more aware on our campus that this role is here .... they know they can come forward and that they can get help, and that’s the best part of my job is working with the survivors,” Navid stated. The Sun adds that the uptick of people coming forward also coincides with BrandonU’s recently updated Sexualized Violence Policy. Brandon Sun
