April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, with a goal to raise public awareness about sexual violence, educate our community about how to prevent sexual violence and give individuals the chance to speak out about ending sexual violence.
Mayor Mary Lou Pauly has issued a proclamation recognizing Sexual Assault Awareness Month in Issaquah, and encourages residents to join advocates and communities across the country in taking action to prevent sexual violence.
In our region, the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center is a victim-advocacy organization that provides critical support, tools, and direct services to children, teens, women and men who are victims of sexual assault. The organization works with clients of all ages and from all backgrounds.
