OWLs to march on campus for SlutWalk

For the second consecutive year, the Organization of Women Leaders' protest will march through campus Saturday to raise awareness of sexual assault and victim blaming.

Registration for the SlutWalk starts at 1 p.m. in the University Center Auditorium located on the third floor. The march starts at 2 p.m. and will be followed by a speech from Andrea Bredbeck, a public speaker and author who spreads awareness of sexual assault.

Korrin Jones, St. Clair Shores senior and secretary of OWLs, said SlutWalk will be a wonderful event meant to support survivors of sexual assault.

"Survivors of sexual assault and aggression often have no one to turn to so we are trying to show them that they do have people advocating for them," Jones said. "Anyone who wants to help us provide that support should come and help us to spread awareness and to stop victim blaming."

Anyone interested in participating in the event can pre-register on a Google document available on the SlutWalk Facebook event.
