The House of Lee put together a silent museum showcasing the violence manifested by toxic masculinity. The installation included life-sized human cutouts that were placed around campus with stories of victims. They also created a campaign video, explaining the growing presence of incels on online social media and how it has perpetrated a culture of sexual violence.

The House of Riordan shined light on #lgbtq history and showed the importance of being an #ally. Through their campaign, they marked the events that impacted the world, such as Stonewall and the legalization of gay marriage. They gave students and teachers the ability to show their support of the lgbtq+ community by writing testimonials of what it means to be an ally. 🌻💛🌼⭐️💛
