Description: 

The GlassBook Project, a joint initiative of Rutgers-University in Newark's Department of Arts, Culture and Media, and Witness Justice, will be launched at a campus reception on Jan. 28, 2010.  The goal: To reshape how people generally think about and respond to survivors and individuals with mental health concerns, shifting the question, "What's wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?"  
 
Informed by individuals who live through traumatic experiences and then respond with self injury, addiction, eating disorders, isolation, hyper-vigilance, and more, students, who are enrolled in a book arts course taught by Rutgers-Newark faculty member Nick Kline, create books made of glass about the trauma response topic.  The books are then exhibited in communities to tell the stories of survival and to build understanding.  The NJ State project will focus on changes in relationships that occur following domestic violence, which is significant because this impacts a survivor's support network, health and wellbeing.  

Some of the more notable speakers and attendees at the reception include:

  • Steven Diner, Chancellor, Rutgers University-Newark
  • Celina Gray, Executive Director of the NJ Governor's Council on Mental Health Stigma
  • Sandra Estepa, Region II Coordinator for the Office of Women's Health/DHHS
  • Nick Kline, Artist, Conceptual Creator and Instructor, Rutgers University-Newark
  • Helga Luest, Founder/President & CEO, Witness Justice
  • Congressman Donald Payne (D-NJ), US Congress (remarks read)
  • Yvonne Pressley, New Jersey State Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health Services
  • Student artists from the first collection (self injury) and the NJ State project (changed relationships after domestic violence

Description: 

The Green Dot primary prevention initiative is a new way of thinking about and doing prevention. Green Dot is about culture change - harnessing the power of individual choices to shift our current norms. It was designed by integrating some of the best research on social change, diffusion of innovation, communication, persuasion, bystander intervention, and perpetrator patterns into a program that makes practical sense. The Institute will feature Green Dot author Dr. Dorothy J. Edwards of the University of Kentucky. Dr. Edwards will train participants on launching a Green Dot movement in their communities, agencies and universities. Participants will leave the Institute fully equipped with the training, materials and resources necessary to get started.

Description: 

Union County College is offering a free screening of this powerful documentary to our students as well as interested members of the community and professionals at local agencies. Nancy Schwartzman's courageous documentary shines a light on issues of consent and female sexuality in way that we don't usually see elsewhere. Rather than asking whether or not women can or should say yes to sex, it's more a matter of how often our "no" often goes unheard or unheeded and that the question "Is it okay if we do this?" is rarely asked to begin with.

See the movie and join the conversation. Reservations are not required and anyone can attend. The movie does include some mature content that may not be appropriate for young children. Additionally, the College does not provide child care services. Please plan accordingly.
