Make it Fun for Everyone
Thursday, February 20th 7pm, Reeve Ballroom B/C
Open to campus
Mike Domitrz presents the one-person show sharing how-to skills for Asking First (verbal consent), Being a Friend (bystander intervention), and Opening a Door (properly supporting survivors and helping more survivors come forward). An interactive and inclusive approach is woven throughout the event (from role-playing to characters on stage).
Mike Domitrz (a leading authority on consent, bystander intervention, healthy dating, and sexual assault awareness) understands college audiences providing an uplifting and entertaining discussion on sensitive issues. Through his role-playing with audience members and his portrayal of intriguing characters on stage, Mike turns what is often labeled as a “silent” issue into an engaging and thought-provoking event. While most people simply “make their move” on a date, Mike shows your students why “Asking First” and getting consent makes all the difference! Plus, students discover how to “Be a Friend” by appropriately intervening in potentially dangerous situations with their peers (especially when alcohol is involved). Through it all, everyone gains a greater level of admiration and respect for survivors of sexual assault. In doing so, each student discovers how to properly provide support for survivors by “Opening the Door” for those he/she cares about. Attendees are given skills to instantly use in their own relationships. Males and females from all cultures, backgrounds, sexual orientations, and diverse populations appreciate Mike’s sincerity and honesty.
This program is part of the campus campaign, Umatter, which develops skills and provides information to increase bystander intervention and decrease high risk behaviors. Cosponsored by Greek Life, Pepsi Fund, Speaker Series.
