Rally to kick off sexual assault and child abuse prevention & awareness month this morning at the Capitol
Let’s Talk About It, a collaboration of Idaho organizations, will hold a press conference and rally Friday morning at 10:30 in front of the Idaho Capitol Building to recognize Child Abuse Prevention and Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month. This effort is designed to raise awareness, gain support and show Idaho that the community cares about the prevention and response to these important issues.
Speakers include Kelly Miller, Executive Director, Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence; Roger Sherman, Executive Director, Idaho Children’s Trust Fund; · Matt Pipkin, Commit 65; and Beatrice Black, Executive Director, Women and Children’s Alliance.
1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men will be victims of sexual assault at some point in their lifetime. We ask the community to pledge to connect with systems and individual allies to prevent and respond to these important issues.
