Never thought one of my official duties of office would be to introduce President Abraham Lincoln to read the Gettysburg Address at the Monticello Celebration!
Next Thursday my office will be hosting a Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Event at Illinois State University to shine a light on campus sexual assault by featuring a panel with seven guest speakers to lead the discussion on the issue and participate in a conversation about how we can help in the fight to address sexual assault on campuses across the country.
One of our speakers is Molly McLay, Assistant Director of the Women's Resources Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her duties include teaching courses on sexual assault awareness and prevention, coordinating the First Year Campus Acquaintance Rape Education Program, and collaborating with campus and community leaders on student empowerment initiatives, including Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April. Molly is a licensed social worker with a Master of Social Work from UIUC and a Bachelor of Arts in English writing and women's studies from Illinois Wesleyan University (IWU). She volunteers with Rape Advocacy, Counseling, & Education Services in Urbana and a women's mentorship council at IWU.
