This inclusive event was created for anyone, regardless of age or gender, seeking to be better informed about sexual assault and prevention

Members of the Twin Ports community were 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 provided attendees with the awareness and knowledge needed to help, or sometimes prevent, a sexual assault should they ever be faced with it.
 
The event started with dinner followed by active bystander intervention training with trained advocates from CASDA on hand. The evening concluded with a panel review of training results.
