Breaking Down the Wall has several and diverse significances. The Wall and its contents will be interpreted differently by each individual and will illicit an array of feelings. Occasionally, the Title IX Coordinator will post contents on The Wall to provoke thought, empower victims of sexual misconduct, advocate for a safe and anti-violent environment, and educate campus constituents on the individual and community-wide impact that sexual misconduct and other forms of gender-based discrimination has on the ability to teach and learn at Orange Coast College.
Should you feel the need to discuss any of the contents on The Wall, please contact Shannon Quihuiz, Title IX Coordinator at (714) 432-5930.

Huge news: The Hunting Ground will be premiering on CNN on 11/19. Host a screening party to ensure this is a watershed moment for the movement.
Kirby and I made this film to raise awareness about campus sexual assaults, crimes that are suffered in silence by millions of women and men but are seldom discussed in public. The theatrical release and more than 700 grassroots screenings around the world have already had a huge impact and have helped put sexual assault front and center in the public consciousness. This upcoming CNN broadcast gives us the opportunity to do even more to raise awareness and galvanize change.
Help us maximize the impact the CNN broadcast will have. Host a screening party:
Screening parties offer a chance for us to connect with our communities and take meaningful action. It's an opportunity for discussion, engagement and change.
Invite neighbors, coworkers, family, classmates, colleagues and friends. Help share the film with others and make a difference. And join us after the broadcast for a live Q&A. We have a great community and we can't wait to connect with you.
