Violence Prevention Grey Bruce

Sexual violence is a problem. One in six women and one in five men will experience some form of sexual violence in their lifetimes. Those experiences have serious and long lasting impacts but they are seldom acknowledged or discussed. Violence Prevention Grey Bruce is launching a social media campaign to change that. May is sexual assault prevention month and Violence Prevention Grey Bruce will release information every day until June to encourage the local conversation about sexual violence, how our community can respond, and what we can do to prevent it. www.violencepreventiongreybruce.com
