Racing to Change chronicles the civil rights movement in Eugene, Oregon, during the 1960s and 1970s—a time of great upheaval, conflict, and celebration as new voices clashed with traditional organizations of power. Co-developed by the Museum of Natural and Cultural History and Oregon Black Pioneers, the exhibit illuminates legacies of racism and the unceasing efforts of Oregon's Black communities to bring about change. 

Through photographs, recorded interviews, and historical archives, Racing to Change explores how racist policies and attitudes created a pressing need for bold civil rights activism in Eugene. Firsthand accounts from movement organizers, former UO students, elected officials, and other members of Oregon's black communities paint a vivid picture of the area's past, and urge us to take part in building a more just future. On view through May 10, 2020.

April 3 12:00 a.m.

April is nationally recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) which is symbolized by a teal ribbon, representing our commitment to supporting survivors. Letting survivors know that we believe, support, and care about them is critical, especially when necessary social distancing measures can result in increased isolation for some.

UO Sexual Violence Prevention and Education (SVPE) invites students, faculty, and staff to submit a picture or 10 second video of themselves in teal along with a short message of why it's important to continue showing support for survivors during the current COVID-19 health crisis. We will be accepting these submissions until April 7, which coincides with the National SAAM Day of Action and will share them on our social media during SAAM. Please follow us on Instagram to learn more about how to participate and to see others' responses!

This week, as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), UO SVPE is focusing on SUPPORT. We recognize that support is an important part of healing and sustaining the critical work of creating a community that is dedicated to preventing sexual violence. We also recognize that the present COVID-19 health crisis can lead to feelings of isolation for some. Over the course of this week (April 6-10), the UO Sexual Violence Prevention and Education (SVPE) team will be sharing resources for how to access the support you deserve and ideas for how to best support survivors during this time in particular. 

Social distancing does not mean that you are alone. We are here for you. Preventing sexual violence requires all of us, particularly right now. To join the conversation and learn more, follow us on Instagram and Facebook:
