The keynote speaker for the event was Liz Seccuro, victims’ rights activist and author of Crash Into Me: A Survivor’s Search for Justice. During her presentation, Seccuro shared her story of survival and how West Virginia campuses can improve their prevention efforts and their response to campus sexual violence. Since the publication of Crash Into Me, Seccuro has appeared on a multitude of national television shows, radio shows, blogs, and magazines.

“Liz bravely shares her story of survival and her own fight for justice, and we were grateful to welcome her to West Virginia,” said Paul Hill, the Commission’s Chancellor. “We must be ever vigilant about the issue of campus sexual violence – and protecting students, faculty, staff and our entire campus communities on multiple fronts.”
