Sawyer Library is pleased to continue our successful Speaker Series with this second event, featuring Suffolk University Alumnus, Robert Uttaro! After graduating from Suffolk in 2007, Uttaro devoted his subsequent years to aiding sexual assault and rape victims via crisis counseling at centers in the area. His book, To the Survivors, highlights individual victims’ stories of trauma and recovery, and draws attention to the public need for crisis counselors serving victims of sexual assault and rape. Please join us in the 9th floor Library Commons to learn about and discuss this serious and timely issue. Robert Uttaro will focus on college sexual assault, how it can occur and how to respond to it.
Robert Uttaro is in his seventh year of working and volunteering as a rape crisis counselor, public speaker and community educator. Inspired by his undergraduate studies in Criminal Justice here at Suffolk, he continues to embrace a life-long commitment to activism and advocacy for survivors of sexual violence. Serving as a counselor, Uttaro supports rape survivors and their significant others through various legal and case management issues.
Robert Uttaro’s book, To the Survivors is available in the library and copies will be available for purchase at the event.
