April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the Hill Climb wraps up a month-long campaign that focuses on building awareness of sexual assault prevention in our communities.
“The Advocates’ April activities reinforce the 2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign theme, “IT’S TIME … TO TALK ABOUT IT! CONNECT. RESPECT. PREVENT SEXUAL VIOLENCE”, according to community education coordinator, Trish Tobias.
In 2011, The Advocates provided assistance to 63 women and 37 children affected by sexual assault. In general, 30% to 35% of The Advocates clients have sexual assault as part of their victimization. Throughout the month of April, The Advocates is running “Sexual Assault Myth Buster” ads throughout Blaine, Camas, Custer and Lincoln Counties. The ads also focus on educating people about the services The Advocates’ provides to help sexual assault victims.
