Soup with Substance-Sexual Violence
Tuesday, Feb. 12, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
LeRoux Conference Center (STCN 160)
Campus Ministry?s next Soup with Substance will explore the issue of sexual violence. With a simple lunch consisting of soup and bread and a room set up to promote round table discussion, the students and faculty of Seattle University will engage with local voices of authority about sexual violence. Conversation will center on the issues of sex trafficking in Seattle, consent on campus and elsewhere, and the resources available for victims of sexual abuse. Bring a friend, bring your thoughts, and share in the experience of conversation and advocating for this critical justice issue. For more information, contact Colleen Newell in Campus Ministry at
