Join us at one of our CEMs, become an advocate or peer facilitator, or volunteer at our next event!
Continuing Education Meetings (CEMs)
CEMs feature a speaker brought in from the Emory community or greater Atlanta area who will talk about and facilitate discussion on a topic or theme in survivor advocacy. Some past discussion topics have been stalking, BDSM relationships, bystander intervention, Title IX, and hookup culture. CEMs are open to everyone, even if you’re not an active member of SAPA!
SAPA advocates are the heart and soul of SAPA. Their main role is to provide non-judgmental support to members of the Emory community, which includes presenting survivors with all possible options for health care, emergency response, and punitive action against the perpetrator. Above all, an advocate is there to listen. Advocates aim to be the first step in the survivor’s re-empowerment process.

SAPA Peer Facilitators
SAPA peer facilitators train more advocates by leading SAPA 101 Training Sessions. Peer facilitators are also expected to hold a more active role in SAPA by participating in events hosted by the organization.
