The Bandana Project
This year during Sexual Assault Awareness Month CSUN's Criminology and Justice Studies Department is recognizing survivors of sexual violence that are often invisible. As a department we will be participating in The Bandana Project, an art-activism project that provides a visible demonstration of our support for farmworker women and girls and our commitment to ending sexual violence in this community. Sexual violence must be eradicated in the workplace and every place!
Farmworker women are particularly vulnerable to sexual violence and may experience multiple barriers to accessing resources within the Criminal Justice System. Language barriers, the migratory nature of farm work, fear of police and other issues often contribute to their vulnerability and the invisibility of the issue.
CSUN CJS faculty, staff and students are shining a light on the experiences of this community during Sexual Assault Awareness Month by creating "Bandana's" that show our support for this community. Photo's of student Bandana's and more information on how to stand up for this community is available in the attached materials
Additional information about the experiences of migrant farmworker women and sexual violence is available online at https://justice4women.org/the-bandana-project
