Annual Events

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We are your link to pink throughout October! Come to survivor panels, Think Pink events, R’Pink Day, self-examination demos and more. Each event is designed to promote early detection, support fighters and survivors and save lives.

See our events calendar for more details.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Relationship violence affects all genders, and takes many forms. It includes any subtle or overt behaviors that frighten, intimidate, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, injure or wound. Say NO to all of them – give or get help for yourself or a friend.

Come to The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) at 260 Costo Hall to get support and referrals for relationship violence, no matter what your gender. We are here to help, and provide a safe space. Go to our website for other helpful campus and local resources.

Donate a Cell Phone Campaign

We are proud to host the Donate A Cell Phone Campaign during October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Help potential victims by bringing your deactivated wireless cell phones to the WRC, Oct.1-31. The Wireless Foundation reprograms them and provides free airtime so callers can reach 911. Make, model or age do not matter; every phone can make a difference!

Contact us for more information.

Campus Safety Walk

During this annual November walk, volunteers scour campus and check for spots made unsafe due to burned-out lights, overgrown shrubbery or other areas conducive to concealing an attacker. After the walk, the group submits its findings to the Campus Safety Committee and Physical Plant for review and repairs.

Contact us if you are interested in volunteering for this year’s campus safety walk.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sometimes people aren’t aware that they’re promoting or engaging in sexual assault or violence. It’s not always clear – unless you’re the victim. SAVE Peer Educators can train your class, student organization, athletic team, or residence hall students how to build skills for healthy relationships and how to counter, prevent, and lessen sexual assault and violence for good.

The Women's Resource Center offers a private setting for sexual assault survivors to come together in a comfortable environment. This group is designed for survivors to support each other through the healing process and provide on and off-campus resources. The groups meets twice a month. For meeting days, times and location, or for more information, contact Romanie Arterberry at (951) 827-3338 or email Romanie at romaine.arterberry@ucr.edu

"The Vagina Monologues"

Our student production of the revolutionary stage show takes place during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April. Chronicling more than 200 interviews Eve Ensler conducted with women around their sexuality, it also serves as a fundraiser to end violence against women as part of a global movement.

See our events calendar for more details.
