Winona State University’s RE Initiative Club and MSUSA Winona State Committee will co-host a panel series “How Gender Based Violence Affects Different Communities” throughout the spring semester.

Each month, a panel will be held in which students are invited to ask questions and discuss the intersectionality of various communities and how they are affected by gender based violence.

The Males Panel will be at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, in the Science Laboratory Center, room 120. The panel of students, who identify with being male, will be discussing how gender-based violence affects the male community differently than normally taught, including talks on masculinity.

The People of Color Panel will be at 7 p.m. Monday, March 14, in the Stark Auditorium, room 103. A panel of students, who identify with being a person of color, will be discussing how gender based violence effects the communities of color differently than normally taught.

The Disability Panel will be at 7 p.m. Monday, April 18, in the Stark Auditorium, room 103. A panel of students, who identify with having a disability, will be discussing how gender-based violence affects the disability community differently than normally taught.

These events are free and open to the public.
