Location: Yellowjacket Union - Great Room
Members of the Twin Ports community are invited to take part in an evening of important conversation to raise awareness and help prevent sexual assault at the free event, Speak Out Superior: Changing the Culture, Engaging New Voices.
According to information from the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault, from 2006 to 2010, 4,960 sexual assults were reported annually to law enforcement in Wisconsin alone. None of us know when we might become a victim or a witness to a sexual assault. Speak Out Superior will provide attendees with the awareness and knowledge needed to help, or sometimes prevent, a sexual assault should they ever be faced with it.
The dinner and program begins at 5:30 p.m. There will be active bystander intervention training with trained advocates from CASDA on hand. The event will conclude with a panel review of training results.
