In case you’e not aware, April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. It’s a topic that’s close to my heart because my current work in process relates specifically to sexual assault on a college campus. Campus Sexual Assault is not new, and I don’t believe that it’s “worse” than it ever was. But it’sContinue reading “National Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month”
It’s happened again, and this time in my own back yard at The University of Minnesota where ten college football players have been disciplined for the alleged sexual assault of a female student.

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you may’ve noticed that I seem to be on a tangent lately as I’ve posted some rather vehement comments and links related to the topic of the sexual assault on college campuses, andContinue reading “Not on a Tangent: It’s my “Work in Progress””
In the last week or so, the whole world has weighed in on the Brock Turner Stanford Rape Case.
