April is the national Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). In honor of SAAM, the Peer Victim Advocate Team, with the Office of Victim Services, will be hosting a number of programs throughout the month. We’d invite you to come join us in bringing awareness to this critical topic, learning more about the issue, and engaging with peers to discuss ways to end it!

The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. This event is for survivors and the Ball State community to express their emotions & support towards survivors!
T-shirts have been decorated by members of the Ball State community and these T-Shirts will be hung on display in front of the Christian Campus House. The clothesline will be viewed by others as a testimony of the impact of violence against women.

Wheelchair Basketball

Join the Adaptive Sports Club for Wheelchair Basketball!
Wednesdays @ 7pm at the Rec Center basketball courts

All are welcome to participate in wheelchair basketball every Wednesday night at 7pm. This is for students of all abilities, and no prior experience needed to participate! For more information on the sport, visit the National Wheelchair Basketball Association webpage.

_______________________________________________________________

Keep an eye out – weekly Goalball games will be starting soon!

The sport, designed for athletes with visual impairments, consists of two halves of 12 minutes each and athletes wear blackout masks on a playing court.



The object of the game is to roll the ball into the opposite goal while opposing players try to block the ball with their bodies. Bells inside the balls help orient the players, indicating the direction of the on-coming ball. Therefore, while play is in progress, complete silence is required in the venue to allow the players to instantly react to the ball. Learn more about the game at https://www.paralympic.org/goalball
