Survivors and Allies Task Force Meetings are held to bring Wisconsin survivors and their allies together so they may network and discuss new developments in the sexual assault movement. It is important to make the connection between the two groups. The purpose of the meeting is to provide survivors with opportunities to voice their concerns and suggestions about current issues that the sexual assault movement is facing.
The Walk to Prevent Sexual Violence is scheduled for Saturday to increase awareness about sexual assault. Augusta State University, Paine College, University Hospital's Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault Services and WRDW-TV (Channel 12) are working together to host the walk as part of the partnership's second annual Take Back the Day observance.
The event begins at 9 a.m. after a brief ceremony at ASU's D. Douglas Barnard Jr. Amphitheatre . Registration , which begins at 8 a.m., is $10 for individuals, $15 for families and $5 for students.
This Alaskan version of Take Back the Night is one of many events coordinated by Standing Together Against Rape (STAR) for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. For a full calendar of SAAM events in the Anchorage area, contact STAR at 907-279-7279
