Project Dinah User’s Manual Introduction

Welcome to the Project Dinah User’s Manual for Fall 2015!

This resource was designed to help everyone feel comfortable engaging in conversations and activism to end all interpersonal violence at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Project Dinah believes that interpersonal violence is everyone’s issue, and that we can solve it together.

Project Dinah (or PD) is a student organization at UNC-Chapel Hill devoted to safety and empowerment. Our mission is to prevent and end all interpersonal violence (stalking, relationship abuse, and sexual violence) on campus and in our community. We ultimately envision a world in which every relationship is free of fear and force. Sounds pretty great, huh?

Throughout the year, PD presents many education, empowerment, and advocacy-based programs (read more about them in the Events section!). If you are a returning student, you may have seen some of our events and/or our teal Alliance Against Violence t-shirts (pictured here!).

In addition to preventing and ending interpersonal violence, we are also very passionate about supporting survivors of violence and creating a safe space at Carolina for these individuals.

We hope that you will click through this User’s Manual and begin or continue your journey with interpersonal violence (IPV) prevention at UNC. If you have questions or want to learn more, please check out our Facebook, Twitter, or the rest of this website. You can also reach out to a returning member, or e-mail us at projectdinah@gmail.com.

All are welcome to attend our weekly meetings on Mondays at 7pm in Dey 206. Our interest meeting will be held on August 31st at the same time/place. We’d love to see you there!

Thanks for reading and taking a stand against interpersonal violence!

Sincerely,

Anna Taylor and Skye Allan
