SEXUAL ASSAULT 101
Lecture followed by Q&A
Monday June 18th
7:30 - 8:30pm
The Volunteer Coordinator from Day One: The Sexual Assault and Trauma Center,
Georgia DiMatteo, will be joining us for an evening of open discussion and learning. She will provide information about the various programs and services at Day One and then will present upon the issue of sexual assault in our community. During the presentation, we will be tackling questions like:
What are the myths and realities of sexual assault?
What are some barriers to reporting an assault?
How does our cultural background affect how we view sexual assault?
She will also provide you with ways to get more involved with Day One and other agencies that provide services that aid survivors of sexual violence.
The discussion is designed to provide you with a safe and non-judgmental space to share your thoughts, ask questions, and hopefully come away more informed and empowered to make positive change.
