I am attending a couple presentations that are sponsored by our local Children’s Advocacy Center the Childhelp River Bridge CHildren’s Center – Until SOmeone Wakes Up is a skit provided by a bunch of College kids about Gender Roles, Sexual Violence and Healing; as well as a speaker (John Warnick) who is presenting at one of our local highschools. He will be talking about the effects of his own victimization on his life.

I attended our local Board of Supervisors meeting and accepted the Proclamation against Sexual Assault. This Proclamation sends a message to our community about sexual assault awareness and no tolerance for it. What a great message to our community!

I’m trying to establish a “jean friday” at my hospital. I want to raise awareness by educating staff and raising funds for our sexual assault program. All those who will participate will be wearing our program ribbon, to show their support. I’m hoping to have an information session aswell on the lunch break. Wish me luck!
