Zulema Moret from Modern Languages and Literatures passes along this information about the Red Shoes Project against Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking:
This will be a month-long celebration to introduce students, faculty, and staff to one of the most painful and serious issues that communities are facing in the modern world. A variety of events are planned that will allow people to discuss and debate the violence exerted on women and girls and the international problem of human trafficking. This series of events will take place from October 25th through November 5th and will include the following:
These diverse events will take place in the months of October and November, and we will be sending a detailed program and flyer with the corresponding sites and days. We plan to present the program to the Grand Rapids community, networking with diverse institutions, including: Hispanic Center of West Michigan, Dominican Center at Marywood, Diocese of Grand Rapids (i.e. Catholic Information Center), as well as other agencies and community services.
