Seneca students are once again raising awareness about an important issue. 

On Wednesday morning, students from the Graphic Design program were at Toronto Police Headquarters to help kick-off Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

In partnership with the Toronto Police Service's Sexual Assault Advisory Committee, students from Professor Paul Shecter’s Design for Social Change course unveiled marketing collateral they created to encourage survivors of sexual assault to tell their story by reporting it to police and by seeking support in the community. 

Students who take the Design for Social Change course offer their design skills to community groups for use on social awareness campaigns. Over the years, students have lent their design talents to campaigns raising awareness about elder abuse, the dangers of guns and gangs and domestic violence.

Earlier this year, students worked with the Toronto Police Service Financial Crimes Unit and Divisional Policing Support Unit to develop campaign material for Fraud Prevention Month. Toronto Sun article and video
