Local sexual assault survivors are speaking out more since allegations of sexual abuse were made against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Help of Door County, which provides services and programs to victims of sexual and domestic abuse, has not seen an increase in reports of assaults. Executive Director Steve Vickman says the organization is hearing from those who’ve kept their silence…until now.
Vickman bases that on responses to information Help of Door County has put out on social media and the number of people who’ve come into the organization’s offices and spoken with staff members.
