At the Monday, March 27th meeting, the Board approved Resolution No. 2023-027 proclaiming the month of April 2023 as Sexual Assault Awareness Month in Nassau County.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month brings attention to the prevalence of sexual violence and its widespread impacts, while promoting responses that lead to positive cultural change. The goal of the month is to raise public awareness about sexual violence; provide education on individual and societal impacts; and encourage community level responses to sexual violence.
The Board joins advocates and community members in raising awareness about sexual violence, centering the needs of those who have been harmed, and advancing equitable support for every survivor.
