CCU to host fair for awareness of gender violence

Coastal Carolina University will host the Project Aware Community Fair on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from noon to 3 p.m. on Prince Lawn. The event is designed to raise awareness and funds on behalf of victims and survivors of gender violence in the area. It is free and open to the public.

The fair will include free food, drinks, games and giveaways. There will be Zumba, makeovers, “What would you do?” skits, and drawings for gift cards and other prizes. CCU Radio will do a live broadcast with social media feeds. There will also be live music and shout-outs by Linda Snelling, founder and CEO of Not One More Inc., Help the Girls and the Silent Witness Program for Horry and Georgetown counties.

The event was conceived, planned, staged and evaluated completely by CCU’s Communication Activism students. The goals of Project Aware are to educate the community about the frequency, incidents, characteristics, warnings and remedies of and for gender violence. Gender violence is a complex problem with social ramifications and consequences, and Project Aware works to identity common stereotypes and inaccuracies governing and affecting gender violence within and beyond the CCU community. Project Aware also acquires resources on behalf of designated organizations within the CCU community that directly assist, advocate for or serve as activists on behalf of the victims and survivors of gender violence.

For more information concerning this event, contact Deborah Breede, associate professor of communication, at 843-349-6481 or dbreede@coastal.edu.
