Feb. 4 2014 marked the start of UCLA’s V-Day campaign, “a global movement to celebrate women, promote gender equality, and end gender based violence.”
In the windy beginnings of Friday afternoon, UCLA students gathered at Kerckhoff Grand Salon to hear a panel on Title IX, given by survivor and activist Annie Clark, and according to her, your Title IX rights as a UCLA student are being violated.
7000 in Solidarity, a campaign against sexual assault, continued Consent Week by organizing a “Survivor Speak Out” Thursday night in the CAPS Large Conference Room on campus.
On Wednesday, the Cultural Affairs Commission, CAC, teamed up with 7000 in Solidarity to create a unique variation of their weekly creative lounge, “The Word.” The night was called “Silence and Sexual Violence,” and anyone who wanted to speak about their assault, the assault of someone they know, or speak in broad terms about oppression was invited to do so.
7000 in Solidarity’s Consent Week began on campus yesterday in Bruin Plaza with an event addressing sexual violence, followed by an evening discussion of gender representation, intersectionality, and the media in Young Hall.
7000 in Solidarity: A Campaign Against Sexual Assault is proud to present Consent Week! This week is dedicated to education on sexual and gender-based violence, as well as expression by survivors/victims.

On Tuesday, December 3rd, the on-campus group 7000 in Solidarity had their art exhibition opening in the Kerckhoff Art Gallery.
Quotes such as “I wasn’t a virgin…but he wished I was” and “I am not a victim. I am a survivor. I refuse to remain silent” were pasted on the walls.
“I feel like anyone with common sense should be a feminist. I don’t think it’s right to put any human being down.”
On Tuesday, Nov. 26th, UCLA’s Gender Health Committee, part of the Student Wellness Commission, put on the Gender Health Fair in De Neve Plaza.
