Every two minutes someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. Each year there are about 213,000 victims of sexual assault. These are just a few of the statistics offered on the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network’s (RAINN) website.
Now imagine that you, or someone you know, were one of those victims described in those statistics.
Thursday, Sept. 22, SC4 will be hosting RAINN Day, a sexual assault awareness, prevention and survival program. The event will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Fine Arts Theatre building on SC4’s campus.
For additional information on the event, call (810) 989-5692.
SC4 is one of hundreds of colleges and university campuses nationwide that are participating in RAINN Day.
Presenters involved include SC4’s Criminal Justice instructor James Jones, as well as Jennifer Radar. Also presenting is the St. Clair County Senior Assistant Prosecutor, Mona Armstrong, and the Director of Support Services/Domestic Violence at Turning Point Inc., Diane Baur.
Through these presenters, as well as various other activities, RAINN will work to educate the community of these issues, as well as support those who are already affected by them.
