Content Warning

Jayhawks Give a Flock utilizes situations and topics that can be difficult for some survivors of sexual violence and/or intimate partner violence. Support for all affected by sexual violence and/or intimate partner violence is available through the confidential CARE Coordinator.

If you feel this program will be a detriment to your emotional health and well-being due to a personal history of sexual or intimate partner violence, we will have alternative in-person programming available. To learn more, contact our office at sapec@ku.edu.
