A sexual assault happens every 68 seconds in the U.S. Members of the LGBTQIA+ community, especially TGQN, are amongst the most at-risk members of the population, with about 21% having been a victim of sexual violence. This presentation is an introduction to sexual violence including terms, myths and facts, statistics, and an overview of the problem. The second part of the workshop focuses on prevention through learning about active bystander intervention, as well as how you can Party Smart by arriving together, sticking together, and leaving together when out in public.
