Sexual Assault Awareness month calls attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and affects every member of this community. 

Prevention is possible when everyone is involved with the first step being to increase education, awareness and community involvement.

We must work together to educate our community about sexual violence prevention, supporting survivors and speaking out against harmful attitudes and action.

HOPE, Inc strongly supports the efforts of national, state and local partners, and of every citizen, to actively engage in public and private effort to prevent sexual violence. 

The City of Clarksburg encourages everyone to start conversations, take appropriate action and support one another to create a safe environment for all.
