Rock Against Rape planned at NIU

Published: Thursday, March 21, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, which means it’s time for the fourth annual Rock Against Rape event at Northern Illinois University.

Rock Against Rape 2013 is scheduled from 8 to 11 p.m. April 4 in the Diversions Lounge of the Holmes Student Center. Admission is free.

Victim Advocacy Services and the Women’s Resource Center, in collaboration with supporting NIU offices, volunteers and NIU and community bands, are enhancing awareness of sexual assault by hosting this concert that inspires and rocks against sexual assault.

Come enjoy music by socially conscious musicians while supporting a good cause. Audience members will learn how campus and local advocates stand against sexual assault and discover the many ways they can take a stand.

In addition, Victim Advocacy Services will accept old cell phones and cell-phone equipment for a donation to the national headquarters for local rape crisis centers.

For more information, call Kelly Phelan at 815-753-0320.
