Penn State To Host ‘Men Against Violence’ Walk April 2

Registration for the annual Men Against Violence Walk has officially opened. The walk will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 2, and begin at Old Main Lawn.

The Men Against Violence Walk encourages men to get involved in the prevention of sexual violence and bring awareness to the fact that it isn’t a woman’s issue, but an issue that affects people of all gender identities.

Check-in for the event begins at 1:30 p.m. Walkers can claim their free t-shirts and create signs during this time. At 2 p.m., keynote speakers will kick off the event before the mile-long walk around campus.

“The Men Against Violence Walk aims to mobilize men to get involved in prevention efforts and play a positive role in creating change,” the registration page said. “Join in the movement by walking our mile-long march around campus to display your commitment to making our campus a safer place to be!”

While male participation is encouraged, anyone is welcome to attend.

You can register for the event here. Throughout the event, participants are encouraged to post pictures using the hashtag: #WhyIWalk.

The event is sponsored by UPUA, the Gender Equity Center, Centre Safe, and the Interfraternity Council.
