UPEI Athletics and Recreation and the UPEI Student Union are proud to support Man Up PEI and their event #StopTheViolence.

In Canada, 67% of Canadians say they have personally known at least one woman who has experienced physical or sexual abuse.

On Sunday, November 26 at 4:00 pm, Man Up PEI will present a short film, at The Guild, entitled "Who are you?".

The film presents an evening in which bystanders do not actively intervene to try and prevent an all-too-common scenario of violence. The audience will be asked to reflect on the question, "Who are you?", in relation to the bystanders presented in the film. Following the film portion of #StopTheViolence, the event will transition to The Alley in Murphy's Community Centre where there will be further discussion and social time.

If you believe that violence of any sort towards women should end–do more than just nod your head and agree–take a stand, and Man Up to end violence against women!
