SAPAC hosts 37th survivor speak-out

Content Warning: This article contains mentions of sexual assault.

The University of Michigan’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center’s (SAPAC) 37th annual survivor speak-out began with a moment of silence Sunday night. About 70 UM community members came together at the Michigan Union’s Pendleton Room to share and listen to stories from sexual assault survivors. The crowd fell quiet as attendees paid respect to those impacted by sexual assault but were unable to attend the speak-out.

The theme of this year’s event was “Metamorphosis.” In the spirit of the theme, attendees were invited to write anonymous positive messages and affirmations for survivors on butterfly-shaped sticky notes and attach them to a poster.
