April is National Sexual Assault Awareness and Child Abuse Prevention Month
One in 4 women and 1 in 6 males in the United States will be a victim of sexual assault before they reach the age of 18. We can help to reduce this number by knowing the facts and practicing prevention in our families, schools, and community. One way to prevent sexual assault and child abuse is through bystander intervention. The goal is stop bad behavior before it crosses the line. We must all be emboldened to step in and stop it. There is a great article that the New York Times did about Bystander Intervention as a way to stop sexual assault on college campuses. You can check out the article here.
