In Deschutes County one in four girls and one in four boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. College students are four times more likely to be sexually assaulted than any other group. Spend an hour engaging about the topic of power, control and sexual violence. Examine how this topic is harming men and women and what we all might do to lessen the burden.

Time: 1-4PM

Experts estimate that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthdays. A child’s safety is an adult’s job. We make sure our children wear seat belts. We walk them across busy streets. It’s adults’ responsibility to also protect children from child sexual abuse.
