Denim Day: April 23, 2014

Hello Metropolitan Community, Staff, Faculty and Students
National Denim Day is coming up on April 23, 2014. This is your opportunity to participate and help support the cause. Every year since 1999 Peace Over Violence has organized Denim Day in LA and across the country. It is a rape prevention education campaign, where we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement and on this day wear jeans as a visible means of protest against misconceptions that surround sexual assault.

Interested in Volunteering?

We are looking for people to wo[man] the table for a one-hour shift or two-hour shift. The tabling schedule is as follows:
Saint Paul Campus (Library first floor): 2:00-6:00 pm
Midway Campus (Break/Common Area): 4:00-6:30 pm

Tabling responsibilities include talking to passing students and community members about the incidence of sexual assault and gender-based violence, provide education and resources through handouts, conversation, and encouraging them to sign a pledge to advocate for and prevent various types of gender-based violence (stalking, emotional abuse, sexual assault, sexual harassment, financial abuse, physical abuse, etc.).

Click here (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1wttcl5C-gQNnA2rtX70WXKuj7x7RHTHP712lqkPcD5c/viewform) to volunteer your time and support today!
 
Thanks for your interest in raising awareness around the incidence of sexual assault and other forms of gender-based violence. We appreciate your support in advance.  If you aren't available to table for this event please stop by one of our sites and sign the pledge or simply wear your jeans on Denim Day to show your support.   
For more information on Denim Day visit  http://denimdayusa.org/ or you can contact the Gender & Sexuality Student Services Office Team with any questions or concerns: Saby Labor, Natasha Chapman , Darlene Edwards or Suzanne Stein

Interim-Parking Update

The university is committed to expanding the capacity of our Saint Paul campus to meet the needs of current and future students. We expect to begin three major construction projects in the coming months. These projects—a parking ramp, a Student Center and a Science Education Center (pending funding approval). As of today, we plan to close the Saint Paul Campus main parking lot on Tuesday, May 6th (one week later than previously announced). 

Our goal is to make this period of transition as seamless as possible. As such, we assembled a group of faculty, staff and students to brainstorm about ways to use the campus adjacent parking.

Learn about where parking is available and other details including:
· Student Parking
· General Parking/Shuttle Service
· Parking Lottery
· Evening Parking
· Special Student Parking
· Guest Parking
· One-Hour Library Parking
· Modified Work Schedules
