A campaign to end violence has expanded at Western Connecticut State University.
Operation Jungle Red has been held for several years to educate students about domestic violence, sexual assault and rape. The presentation Wednesday featured state Attorney General George Jepson about campus violence. Students were encouraged to sign a pledge against violence.
This year a series of events were held that also included presentations about stereotypes and myths related to gender, race and the realities of abusive relationships. There was an event featuring hostile language, the impact of these words and who to intervene in those circumstances.
Operation Jungle Red organizers say the activities are meant to promote reflection and to build awareness.
