Marywood University joins in the national effort in providing its "Release the Light" Sexual Assault Awareness Program. April is designated as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month and communities and colleges across the nation will be joining together against crimes of sexual abuse. The purpose is to increase student and community awareness for the need of violence prevention and reducing incidents of sexual assault on college campuses and in the community.

Due to Inclement weather, the carnival will head inside to Nazareth Fireplace Lounge, with live bands and music by EJ the DJ!  There will be lively games, arts and crafts, a bounce house, speakers, free food, the Clothesline Project, and lots of information on healthy relationships and sexual assault prevention. There will once again be a Let Your Feet Speak mile March through campus.  

Local businesses will donate an assortment of food (hot dogs, pizza, desserts, drinks, and snacks) to this event.   All students, faculty, and staff are welcome!
