Thursdays in Black relaunch – 22 March

Being safe on campus, in public or in your home is everyone’s right, regardless of your: * race * ethnicity * sexuality * gender identity * class * disability (visible or not) * religious affiliation * political views, and even the way you choose to dress. 

Thursdays in Black is a National student/whānau movement that works towards a world free of rape and violence. #TIB campaigns for campuses to be safe for everyone.

The UCSA has teamed up with the UC Thursdays in Black Society for the 2018 relaunch barbecue. Head down to C-Block lawn from 11.00am on Thursday 22 March for a free sausage, a few tunes and a special  guest speaker.

Come for a chat, with the people dressed in BLACK. They will happily provide information about the campaign and how you can get involved. We want to hear what you want, and give you information about all the  support services available on campus and in the Christchurch area.

Make sure you wear BLACK and come along to be a part of positive change on campus.
