RISE Book Display

Now through April 30, 2021

UMKC Library | First Floor

In collaboration with the UMKC RISE program, the UMKC Libraries have a book display for the month of April for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Shelves displaying books related to the theme of sexual assault awareness

RISE stands for Resources, Intervention, Support, & Education. The program offers confidential support services to UMKC all students and employees who are victims and survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence, gender-based violence, stalking, and relationship abuse. RISE also provides information and assistance to family members, friends, colleagues, and allies of all victims and survivors. 

Books included in the display can be checked out by taking them to the library Service Desk. Learn more by visiting the RISE resource list, with recommendations for support and advocay on campus and beyond, for victims/survivors, and for family, friends, and allies. Pick up a brochure, coloring page, or a UMKC Green Dot button from the display, too! 

Coloring pages that say "yes means yes," "believe and support survivors," and "consent culture."
