III. Event Spotlight: 28th St. March

We at SCAR have been talking about addressing street harassment in a public way, and we have an idea we’re pretty excited about – involving wacky outfits, various student assemblies, multi-media, and musicianship. Street harassment, aka cat-calling, is a dehumanizing behavior that happens when a stranger makes unsolicited, often disrespectful and even threatening comments to someone on the street. People of ALL genders, races, and sexual orientations are subject to street harassment.

Check out these PSAs for more info:

SCAR believes no one should be harassed and dehumanized for being in public. Drawing inspiration from some responses to street harassment, SCAR will be putting on a march down the Row. The idea is simple: walk down 28th St. wearing whatever outfit you want!

Date TBD. This could happen as early as Monday 10/21, so stay tuned!

IV. In the Works: SCAR Zine!

We’re excited to announce the launch of a SCAR Zine – a DIY magazine by USC students, for USC students! It’s all about showing off your talents and speaking out about what matters to you!
