This presentation was very informative. A tough but necessary subject to go over. Was happy to see so many men and women attend. It was suprising to hear some of the statistics and am glad to know that this issue has been taken seriously.

The presentation was very enlightening, and the speaker did a great job presenting the information. The only think I would change for similar future events in that room is to somehow make what is projected on the big screen more visible by turning down the lights more.

Thanks to the School of Social Work for providing this opportunity to stay current on matters involving race relations.
