Let Our Voices Run
Virtual run to end violence on campus.
Violence is impacting our campus communities in Singapore. According to a report in Parliament on 3 Nov 2020 by Minister of State of Education, Ms Sun Xueling, a total of 172 sexual misconduct cases in institutes of higher learning were handled by institutes of higher learning between 2015 to 2019. This translates into an incidence rate of 0.12 for every 1,000 staff and students.
We hope to change this.
Let Our Voice Run is a 3-year campaign that focuses on raising awareness and addressing sexual harm and dating violence experienced by young adults in tertiary institutions. This is through having conversations on building respectful relationships and safe campus communities through collective efforts with concerned stakeholders.
Let Our Voice Run was first launched in year 2020, where the focus was on raising awareness on violence through a relational approach, with a special focus on sexual violence. The 2020 campaign saw a total outreach to 1,687 individuals.
In 2021 and 2022, we hope to raise awareness through facilitated conversations on campus and build connectedness through listening to voices affected by violence, especially sexual violence.
Join us on 28 November 2021 for this virtual run in Singapore and help Lutheran Community Care Services raise funds to train passionate student leaders to facilitate restorative conversations on campus to strengthen communities.
