Using education as a tool for change, Educator Advocates work to prevent sexual violence and relationship violence on campus and in the community. We facilitate workshops, discussions, and events on sexual assault, consent and bystander intervention at UMass, other local colleges, middle and high schools, community organization and businesses throughout Hampshire County.
