1 min read

Every 98 seconds, another sexual assault occurs according to the Rape Abuse & Incest National Network, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. In recognizing April as Sexual Assault Awareness month, the Ocean County Library along with the Ocean County Health Department, the Ocean County Advisory Commission on the Status of Women and the Long Beach Island Health Department, recently partnered to host an interactive program focusing on sexual assault prevention for all ages. The program, entitled Sexual Assault: Engaging New Voices, was held on April 25 at the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library. “This program helped raise awareness and provided important information for families and survivors,” said Freeholder Virginia E. “Ginny” Haines, who serves as liaison to the Ocean County Advisory Commission on the Status of Women. “I want to thank all the agencies involved and the Ocean County Library for hosting this program. Knowledge is one of the greatest tools we can have when it comes to our safety and protecting those we love.”
