At the May 14th event, we will hear remarks from Eliza Campbell, BARCC's Community Engagement Specialist.
BARCC stands for Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. As BARCC's community engagement specialist, Eliza Campbell is responsible for increasing the capacity of communities to respond to and prevent sexual violence by building and strengthening relationships with community groups, organizations, and community leaders. She first came to BARCC as a volunteer for the Community Awareness and Prevention Services (CAPS) team in 2014. Eliza has her master’s degree in social work from Boston University with a concentration in macro practice and a certificate in human services management. Prior to getting her master’s, Eliza worked at a small rape crisis center as a counselor and advocate for youth survivors of sexual violence. She was introduced to anti-violence work as an undergrad by volunteering on a hotline for survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Los Angeles.
