Dear Old West Durham, Old North Durham, Trinity
Heights and Trinity Park Associations,
My name is Chloe Chien and I attended the
pots-and-pans protest at 610 N. Buchanan yesterday
morning. In light of recent sexual assault of a NCCU
student, I am so grateful that many community members
are concerned and proactive in taking actions.
I am a sexual assault prevention peer educator on
campus. I would like to share with you the Sexual
Assault Prevention Week that begins today.
There is an event every evening from Mon-Thurs as well
as all-week long displays on campus. Please see below
for event details.

contribute to this great experience. It's Wednesday
7pm, on East Campus in front of the Marketplace.

In the fall of 1997 one of these two women was the

enthusiasm, and a refreshing dose of humor.
