April is Sexual Abuse Awareness month and Crisis Connection is doing everything they can to spread knowledge and teach about sexual abuse.
Crisis Connection has been all over through the first half of April, where they participated in RAINN Day on April 4th, embracing the blue triangle movement. The Blue Triangle Movement is when a patron draws a blue triangle on their hand, representing a megaphone to show that they are committed to speaking up about sexual violence.
Crisis Connection has also been to Petersburg Elementary for Child Saftey Festival and at the Joe Schaefer Park in Tell City for the Children’s EGGstravaganza to teach children about sexual assault directly.
Brooke Sanders, a Child Advocate for Crisis Connection, told us where Crisis Connection will be for the rest of April.
Crisis Connection will also be at Yellig Park on April 27th from 9 AM to Noon for the Families First Fun Fest.
Crisis Connection envisions a community free of behavior that causes physical, psychological, or sexual harm to others. They promote individual accountability and respect to end domestic violence and sexual assault through confidential crisis intervention, victim advocacy, prevention education and collaboration with community partners.
Crisis Connection serves Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Martin, Orange, Perry, Pike, Spencer counties.
