The Women's Center, Asian American Cultural Center, and USG invite you to a talk given by Chanel Miller, an artist, writer, and author of Know My Name.
First known publicly as Emily Doe, Miller is the survivor of the Stanford University sexual assault case that exposed the harsh reality of what many victims face. Her assailant, Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral—viewed by eleven million people within four days, it was translated globally and read on the floor of Congress; it inspired changes in California law and the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time. Now she reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words.
This virtual event will be held on Monday, April 18, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. See more information on the event page.
