Join us on Northeastern’s Centennial Common as we celebrate women, the empowering art of Tatyana Fazlaizadeh and take a stand against harassment of all kinds. Tatyana’s Stop Telling Women to Smile public art project is leading the effort to end the street harassment of women and LGBTQ people. Tatyana will be there wheat pasting a new Stop Telling Women to Smile artwork onto the façade of the Latino/a Student Cultural Center and there will be live performances of all kinds. Let’s come together to make our campus & the world a safer place. 

Please stay for the panel discussion Public Art, Public Policy: And Interdisciplinary Dialogue on Title IX and the Clery Act.
