Poster for guest speaker, Katie Koestler, an activist, educator and survivor

The campus community is invited to Elmira College’s Gibson Theatre this Wednesday, September 20 at 7:00 p.m., for guest speaker, Katie Koestner, a sexual assault activist, educator, and survivor.

The evening will focus on discussion, education, and Katie’s remarkable story of being a college student and making date rape, or forcible rape, a worldwide conversation in the early 1990’s.

Today, Koestner is a rape counselor and awareness advocate working to prevent further assaults from happening.

The discussion, sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, will be followed by a coffee reception.
