Students camp out for violence prevention

This week a group of Pittsburg State University students is camping out in front of the Overman Student Center in an effort to prevent violence and sexual assault. Members of the PSU Students Against Violence through Education (SAVE) and Men for Violence Prevention (MVP) are living in a tent near a large rock in front of the student center where they are collecting donations for the Crisis Resource Center of Crawford County.

Organizers say they plan to continue living in the tent until midnight on Friday, April 20, for a total of 120 hours. Their objective is not just to raise money, but to also raise awareness of what life is like for survivors of sexual assault.
