I've been working tirelessly along with my peers to bring UT a great Social Work Council Empowerment Week!

Join us on Gregory Plaza Tuesday, April 3rd, and Wednesday, April 4th from 10am-2pm for Empowerment Week.

Both days will include the same events.

This year, SWC's Empowerment Week focuses on Safety: Personal, Sexual, and Alcohol. Free t-shirts at the ev

Personal Safety: ResistAttack has donated 100 pepper sprays that we will be giving out for free.

Around 90% of sexual assaults occur between people that know each other. Although pepper spray cannot change the intent of an attacker, it is our hope that carrying this bottle will empower you. Being attacked is NEVER your fault. To speak with someone about relationship violence, sexual violence, or stalking anonymously, call UT 24-hour Telephone Counseling at 512-471-2255 or go to the Counseling and Mental Health Center on the 5th floor of the Student Services Building (SSB).

If we are out of pepper spray when you drop by, please visit our personal fundraising page through ResistAttack to purchase your own. 25% of the proceeds will go towards Social Work Council's mission to empower UT students.

If you don't want to purchase anything, you can still make a donation by clicking the "Donate" button.

Sexual Safety: UT's Voices for Reproductive Justice teams up with SWC to hand out condom goodie bags.

Special thanks to C.A.R.E. Program for donating female condoms and dental dams! Come out to learn more about how female condoms can work for you and your partner.

Alcohol Safety: UT's Alcohol and Drug Peer Educators join us on April 3rd to distribute free t-shirts and literature on knowing your limit. The literature will be available both days.

Special thanks to UT Senate of College Councils.
