Lawrence, KS  –  The University of Kansas has invited our very own, Dr. Syard Evans, to be a keynote speaker on April 9th, 2018, at an event titled “Embrace Your Voice.” This event is part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month at the campus. Dr. Evans will join Ms. Sara Li, founder of Project Consent and Mr. Tony Porter, founder of A Call To Men and TED Speaker.

Each activist will speak for 20 minutes to the entire audience in a keynote-style presentation.  The audience will then self-select a 40-minute breakout workshop with the presenter whose voice most reflects their own, to cultivate their future activism goals.

Jen Brockman, Director of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center at the University of Kansas said she is “thrilled to partner with Dr. Evans. We believe the partnership of these three speakers at this event would galvanize students from many identities towards real change and activism at the University of Kansas.”

Dr.Evans is excited and honored to have this opportunity.

“Being an effective ally and advocate requires us to invest in the work of disarming our personal privileges and power so as to not bring further harm to those we wish to support. I’m excited and honored to be able to share my own, on-going, journey to effective allyship and strategies necessary to avoid harming when we intend to help at the University of Kansas as they recognize and commemorate Sexual Assault Awareness Month.”

Congratulations, Dr. Evans!
