PAASA the Civility, Please (NYC)

News Story

This week, the NYC Campus is smashing pumpkins, tie dying shirts, and trick-or-treating for diversity while welcoming a new student org in support of sexual assault awareness. There’s a whole lot of civility happening here.

It’s baaack! The Civility Collateral is hosting their third annual Civility Week and this year, they’re focusing on diversity. From transgender issues to fair wages, there’s a cause and event for everyone to get behind. And if that’s not enough, there’s a new student org in town. Peer Advocates Against Sexual Assault (PAASA) invites you to a Town Hall for domestic violence awareness month.
