As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the Civic Engagement Committee released statistics on sexual assault alongside a launch of the #NoMore Campaign. In the original post, we included the following:
“On average 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States. Silence and lack of knowledge about these problems play a large part in why domestic and sexual violence continue to persist. Understanding the warning signs or red flags for domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse is a critical first step in addressing and preventing these crimes.” – The NO MORE Project
