Resources will be used to establish the annual Heartland Campus Safety Summit for the purpose of assisting colleges and universities in their efforts to reduce dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
“We are excited that the Kansas Health Foundation has invested in us and the mission of reducing gender-based violence on the campuses of Kansas colleges and universities”, says Curt Brungardt, Jana’s Campaign president.
The Heartland Summit will bring national experts to the region and encourage area college personnel to share best practices on their work to reduce gender violence.
Jana’s Campaign Inc. of Hays is a national anti-violence education and prevention organization developed after the death of KU law student, Jana Mackey, in 2008. Mackey was a Hays native; Brungardt is her step-father.
