An exhibition on "The Legacy of the Delaware Coastal Zone Act: Conserving the First State" will be on view through July 17 in the Morris Library.

A representative of the event said, "This will be a fun opportunity for men to educate and inspire the campus community to take action in the prevention of sexual violence, and learn about resources for victims on campus like Sexual Offense Support (S.O.S.)."

Any men on campus who are interested in marching should arrive at the Multipurpose Rooms of the Trabant University Center by 5 p.m. to grab a pair of heels and for the opening remarks at 5:30 p.m.

During and after the march, the Inter-Fraternity Council and the Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Committee invite the community to use Twitter to tweet with the hashtags #Recognize, #intervene or #Support.

All Sexual Assault Awareness Month programs will feature the theme of “Use Your Power” to be an "active bystander" against sexual violence.

By tapping into social media platforms such as Twitter, UD officials said they believe the campus community will encourage everyone to be an "active bystander" against sexual violence.
