healthy relationships week

The goal of Healthy Relationships Week is to foster the development of healthy relationships and, in turn, prevent domestic violence and sexual assault. The week traditionally focuses on encouraging individuals to define what love means to them through the Love Is… campaign. The week's programming is open to all and includes social media posts and an educational program or resources. Healthy Relationships Week is celebrated in the month of February around Valentine’s Day. Alpha Nu also participates in Valentine's writing for True North of Columbia!

these hands don't hurt week

Each spring, Alpha Chi Omega specifically devotes a week to raise money and awareness for the survivors of domestic violence. We set up stations across campus, where members of the MU community can sign the wall in Speaker's Circle, pledging to put an end to domestic violence and also host other events to promote domestic violence awareness.

Denim Day

Denim Day was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.

5k in a day

Newly added in 2021, 5K in a Day is a 24-hour online fundraising period with the goal of raising at least $5,000 for our beneficiary, True North of Columbia. With the success of 5K in a Day in 2021 by exceeding our established goal of $5,000, we hope to establish this event as a new yearly tradition for our chapter!
