Join UB in raising awareness about domestic and intimate partner violence, and learn how to support those who have been affected.

Get Involved

Domestic and intimate partner violence is a major public health, human rights, and social justice issue, and we need everyone’s help to end it. UB hosts a number of events this month and beyond for you to get involved. Signature events include Walk With Me and Hoops for Hope.


Health Promotion hosts a variety of violence prevention workshops all semester long. Learn how to be an active bystander, how to help a friend affected by sexual violence, and tap into community resources. All workshops are free and open to all students.
