Sexual Assault Awareness Month: UNFROZEN by Jamie Devin Wilson (Female-Identifying Audience)

NOTE: Per the speaker's request, we are requesting that audience members attend the session that most closely aligns with their gender-identity. The content of the sessions do not differ. This session is for female-identifying audience members.

Content Warning: Sexual Assault/Sexual Violence

Join the Grand Valley State University Interfraternity Council for a powerful and enlightening program, UNFROZEN, by Jamie Devin Wilson, where Jamie will share her personal and professional journey navigating through challenging chapters and ultimately finding strength amidst adversity.

Through her experiences, Jamie sheds light on the critical need for a culture of care and consent within the sorority and fraternity community. Facing the harsh reality of sexual assault during their time as a student, Jamie advocates for change and transformation within these organizations.

UNFROZEN is not just a story but a call to action. Jamie empowers audiences to react, advocate, and make informed decisions, ultimately paving the way for a safer and more supportive sorority and fraternity experience. Attendees will gain valuable insights into sexual assault prevention, learn active bystander intervention strategies, and engage in interactive sessions aimed at fostering empathy and kindness during disclosures of assault. While Jamie's story may come from the perspective of a sorority woman, membership in a fraternity or a sorority is not required for attendance.

This program is a must-attend for anyone looking to make a difference, create positive change, and equip themselves with the tools to advocate for a better future within their organizations. Utilize this opportunity to join the conversation and become a catalyst for meaningful transformation. Join us for UNFROZEN and be inspired to make a difference. The program will feature a one-hour keynote followed by a one-hour Q&A session.

The State Female Normal School, now Longwood University, in Farmville, VA, was the first institution of higher learning in Virginia to admit women for collegiate study. Naturally, it attracted superior students, many of them daughters of college professors already familiar with the fraternity idea. Among the students attending in the fall term of 1901 were five women who had become very good friends. Attractive, vivacious and intelligent, they had been recruited and bid by the existing sororities. However, if they accepted these bids, it would mean that the five would not be sorority sisters. However, rather than accepting bids that would separate the group, they decided to form their own sorority and on Nov. 15, 1901, a new sorority was organized and named Alpha Sigma Alpha. As stated in the charter, "The purpose of the association shall be to cultivate friendship among its members, and in every way to create pure and elevating sentiments, to perform such deeds and to mold such opinions as will tend to elevate and ennoble womanhood in the world." The open motto of Alpha Sigma Alpha is "Aspire, Seek, Attain."
