The Community Education Program provides outreach and education to help individuals learn how each of us plays a role in the process of ending sexual assault and exploitation, child abuse and neglect, and domestic violence. We believe our community’s understanding and knowledge of the issues can lead to more accountability from employers, the justice system, schools and government.
