Garden City, NY —

Student survivors of sexual violence from around the country

What: Student survivors of sexual violence from around the country have contributed brief descriptions of what they were wearing when they experienced the assaults. These descriptions have been used for an art installation that recreates the outfits worn during the attacks.

When: Wednesday, March14, 2018; 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Where: College Center Building, Multipurpose Room

Why: The outfits serve as a visual representation of survivor stories and are a tangible response to one of the most pervasive rape culture myths — the belief that clothing or what someone was wearing "causes" rape.
