SUNY Potsdam – Supporting Each Other and Fighting Back!

SUNY Potsdam September 2015

It was really exciting to bring our badass Students Fight Back event to SUNY-Potsdam! These students really came together to support one another all while learning how to be their own best protectors. At the top of our SFB program, we share our story and emphasize that because violence touches each and every one of us, violence is truly an epidemic. The reason why we at SFB & GFB feel that it is so important to talk about the reality of violence in our everyday lives is that we know the more we talk about it, the more we will be able to realize we are not alone. When we realize that the experiences we ourselves have lived through or the experiences of close friends or family members are not isolated events, we allow ourselves to build greater connections within our own communities.

A week before the SFB event in Potsdam, a tragic event struck a nearby campus. What I admire about the students of Potsdam and the students in the surrounding area, is that they were able to come together after this tragedy. It was wonderful to have students familiar with our GFB program show up as well as a few first-timers! We were very lucky to have Bradon, a senior at SUNY-Potsdam, return for a second year as our not-so-scary Creeper McCreeperson volunteer. I want to add a special shout out to Jackie and Ruth for putting together and running a truly special SFB event.

Thank you & go forward peacefully!

    She said while the college is capable of responding to some student requests such as increasing the number of faculty and staff members of color, other desires, like changing the culture of the wider Potsdam community, are long-term efforts that should be carried by residents.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter
    a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few
    folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this during my search for something relating
    to this.
