This week, Curt and Christie Brungardt, faculty members at Fort Hays State University and founders of Jana's Campaign, will speak at a national conference at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire on the issues of reducing gender-based violence on college campuses.

They will be presenting on a panel with other experts who have moved from victimization to activism. The Brungardts also have been selected to be part of a 90-member coalition of national experts to develop and implement strategies on college campuses across the U.S.

Jana's Campaign is a regional gender violence prevention and education organization located in Hays. Jana's Campaign was created in honor of Jana Mackey, who lost her life to domestic violence in 2008. Mackey, a Hays High School graduate, was a law student at the University of Kansas and spent years volunteering and helping victims of sexual assault and domestic violence in Lawrence.
