No… this isn’t a tutorial or an April Fool’s joke. The MRMC Social Club, via GiselleArceneaux, asked that I post about their effort to increase awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault toward a goal of ending it. So, here is their announcement of an upcoming event in Second Life™.
MRMC Social Club to Sponsor “NO MORE” Awareness Event April 16-17
The Metal Riders MC Biker Social Club will sponsor a “NO MORE” awareness event Saturday April 16th and Sunday April 17th at the infamous “Sturgis” sim. [Map URL]
ABOUT NO MORE
NO MORE is a unifying symbol and campaign to raise public awareness and engage bystanders around ending domestic violence and sexual assault. Launched in March 2013 by a coalition of leading advocacy groups, service providers, the U.S. Department of Justice, and major corporations, NO MORE is supported by hundreds of national and local groups and by thousands of individuals, organizations, universities, and communities who are using its signature blue symbol to increase visibility for domestic violence and sexual assault. Further information is available at nomore.org.
This is an awareness event, not a fundraiser…. in addition to entertainment and social activities, some featuring prizes, there will be information readily available about domestic violence and sexual assault, including stats, warning signs, and information as to where to go and who to contact for help.
Giselle Arceneaux, event coordinator commented,”The MRMC hopes that in addition to being a enriching and enjoyable event for Second Life, that the information we share related to this issue will be of value to Second Life Residents. We welcome everyone, and encourage you all to drop in!”
