Awareness leads to action and advocacy.
Raising awareness about issues of justice and inequities is something all of can do. Every service opportunity in the Volunteer Center is an opportunity to learn about social issues in our community. In addition to the weekly opportunities, the PVC honors three national awareness movements.
- This year marked the first Sexual Assault Awareness Week in September.
- The Week of Hunger and Homelessness occurs each October.
- During the month of November, the PVC encourages men to grow mustaches to support the Movember for men's health and to encourage more men to engage in the community.
- Starting each year with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the PVC partners with Intercultural Affairs for the Week of Peace, Hope, and Justice.
