their day.Together, we are building the movement to make sexual assault on college
This national day of action is inspired by the activism and art of Columbia
University student, Emma Sulkowicz, who is boldly carrying a dorm mattress around
as long as her rapist continues to attend the same university. To support Sulkowicz
victims of sexual assault, Fredonia will be participating in the “Carry the Weight”
of action, to demonstrate that these survivors are not alone.
There will be an event for "Carry the Weight" in conjunction with "Take Back the Night."
