Undergraduate Social Work Organization Events
The Krystal Skinner Memorial Domestic Violence Awareness Walk
Every year, the USWO organizes and runs the Krystal Skinner Memorial Domestic Violence Awareness Walk. This event aims to educate the community about the social issue of domestic violence and commemorate Krystal Skinner. At the walk, we provide resources to help those who are in, or know someone who is facing domestic violence.
This event also raises money for the Krystal Skinner Memorial Scholarship Fund. Krystal Skinner, 22, of Linwood, NJ, was stabbed to death on March 26, 2008 in an apparent domestic violence dispute. Krystal, who had a two year old son, was a senior at Rutgers University-Camden and a social work major interning with the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS). The Krystal Skinner Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to financially assist eligible individuals pursuing their social work degree at Rutgers University.
