IC ACTS seeks to shed new light on sexual assault


An Illinois College student performance troupe, IC ACTS, will will perform “Break the Silence,” a series of short dramatic pieces addressing different forms of sexual assault, on Thursday, April 12, at 7 p.m. in Sibert Theatre.

"Break the Silence" is composed of pieces that address rape, sexting, relationship abuse, verbal harassment and bullying. The goal is to shed new light on sexual assault and improve the students understanding of the subject.

IC ACTS (Advocate, Communicate, Teach, Support) works in conjunction with the Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault and has teamed  with the Illinois College Peer Health Educators, a student group that promotes healthy living.

This presentation is free and open to the public.
