Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April 5, 2016

April is nationally recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Sexual assault is a devastating public health, human rights, and social justice issue in our community, and around the world.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), about 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually assaulted before the age of 18.

It’s up to us to support survivors of sexual assault.

Check out the US Department of Justice’s website that’s dedicated to education and prevention of sexual violence. Learn how to talk to your children about sexual assault, how to recognize abuse, and how to help and support survivors.
