“I Believe You… now what?” was the topic of discussion on November 22 at a student-led forum at Red Deer College (RDC).
The Margaret Parsons Theatre was a full house, with several panelists speaking on the issue of sexual violence.
Two student ambassadors designed the evening event as part of the 2018 I Believe You campaign. The keynote event of the campaign featured six panelists from several disciplines and schools of thought within RDC including Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology, Philosophy and Criminal Justice.
Each panelist presented briefly from their perspective, which was followed by a question and answer period from students and the general public who were in attendance.
The evening was well attended and brought out a thoughtful discussion, to be continued on in to daily life, surrounding victim blaming, false reporting and the concept of creating a culture of respect.
