The Brock Turner sexual assault conviction has ignited backlash and conversation about sexual violence and criminal justice. Join CHRC for another round of online discussion, entitled #NotJustStanford. This discussion will explore the larger question of how to end victim blaming and eliminate sexual assault. This topic is sensitive but important, and we hope you engage with us.
