April is National Sexual Abuse Awareness Month and the Violence Intervention Project (VIP) in Kewaunee County is working to shed light on the pervasive issue of sexual violence. Brooke, a sexual assault victim advocate with VIP, says the “hands around” event later this month will be informative and fun for families to attend.
The “hands-around” event will be held on Tuesday, April 24 from 3:30 until 5:30 at the Human Services Building in Kewaunee. According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), one in three women will experience some form of sexual violence and 63 percent of sexual assaults are not reported to police.
