SUNY's Got Your Back

« Back to main calendar
Oct 16, 2019 | 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Create comfort kits for victims and survivors of violence and learn methods of better preventing and responding to violence.

SUNY’s Got Your Back provides the opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to fill backpacks with personal care items for children and adults at hospitals, and rape crisis and domestic violence shelters. Often they come in with little more than the clothes they are wearing.

SUNY has collaborated with the Office of Victim Services, the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault), the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the New York City Alliance, State Police and others, the SUNY Title IX Coordinators Association, and other partners to assemble bags at every SUNY campus.
