Tallahassee, FL — Alpha Chi Omega Foundation is sponsoring the presentation Kristin’s Story: A Story of Acquaintance Rape and Depression for the Florida State University campus community. This proactive, co-educational rape education program will be held on April 14, 2014 at 6 in the Turnbull Center Room 208.

Kristin’s Story describes a young woman’s acquaintance rape and subsequent suicide in 1995 as told by her mother, Andrea Cooper. Her moving narrative shares the deeply moving account of her daughter, Kristin Cooper, a Baker University student and member of Alpha Chi Omega Fraternity. “I am sharing this because I hope by telling Kristin’s story that other lives will be saved, and other young women will not be victims of acquaintance rape, and that those suffering from depression, for ANY reason, will get help,” says Cooper.

In 1998, Andrea Cooper, a member of Delta Delta Delta Fraternity decided to share Kristin’s Story with Greek communities across the country. The response was overwhelming and a new rape education program was born. Since it’s inception, Cooper has been sharing Kristin’s Story with young women and men at over 300+ campuses and conferences worldwide. The program seeks to raise awareness and provide resources for acquaintance/date rape education. The program is currently funded by a grant from the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation.
