Sexual Violenc: Changing the Culture
Nov

12:30 PM12:30

Sexual Violenc: Changing the Culture

Nearly 40% of women living in New Jersey - over 1.3 million - reported experiencing sexual assault during their lifetime.  According to the FBI, sexual assault is the second most violent crime in the U.S (murder is the first). 

We simply can no longer sit back and observe.  Too many innocent people are being irreparably harmed.  

Attend this FREE event and listen to the conversation as our distinguished panel shares facts and discusses their work and the actions one can take to change the culture.

PANELISTS - 
Valerie Vainieri Huttle, NJ Assemblywoman, District 37
Patricia Teffenhart, Exec. Dir., NJ Coalition Against Sexual Assault
Helen Archontou, CEO, YWCA of Bergen County
Liz Corsini, VP / Dir. of Programs, Bergen Family Center
Coach Barry Harris, Head of Security, Englewood Public Schools
Elke Stein, Dir. of Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse Services, Project S.A.R.A.H

Because we anticipate a large audience, please allow time for parking, registration, and refreshments.  Parking is available in Temple Emeth's parking lot and on the northbound and southbound sides of Windsor Road.

If you have any questions, contact Ina Miller Silverstein atinams98@yahoo.com or Joan Snider at joansni@optonline.net.
