The following week on Wednesday, October 23 from 11am-1pm, our campus PAU Violence Kaua`i Committee, with support from our ASUH-KCC Student Government, will be hosting our very first "Breaking the Silence" Open Mic Event + Mini Resource Fair. Students, Faculty, Staff, and Community Members are encouraged to attend and participate. In particular, some of our Campus Security will be performing. This is another way for us to introduce ourselves and let you know that we are resources here on campus for you.
