Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Police are still looking for this man, who is accused of at least one sexual assault in Bozeman.
Unfortunately, I think most of us know someone who has been sexually assaulted.
Awareness, education and looking out for one another is key, and the Bozeman Police Department wants to help.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence.
The 2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign centers on promoting healthy sexuality to prevent sexual violence.
From the Bozeman Police Department:
In a goal to have a healthy conversation regarding awareness of sexual assault in our community, the Bozeman Police Department invites the public to join your local criminal justice community and supporting advocacy groups to give information on how we’re working to address concerns regarding sexual assault in our community.
This forum will include education on the dynamics of sexual assault, resources available, and information on how we work together with the community to combat this issue. We will be providing an opportunity for questions you may have. Representatives from local and MSU law enforcement, prosecutors, HAVEN, the MSU Voice Center and Help Center advocates will be there to answer your questions.
When: Thursday April 26, 2012
Time: 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Where: City Commission Room at 121 N. Rouse Avenue
