People with disabilities are invited to talk about sexual abuse. A trained sexual abuse counselor will be available, and a Comfort Room for people who may need to take a break.
We’ll talk about the facts around sexual abuse.
- Human body parts
- Sexual acts
- How to learn more
- Sexual abuse
- What consent is
- Ways to say NO and Tell
- What reporting means
- Your rights
- Where, when, and by whom sexual abuse happens
Guests (staff, family members, friends etc.) will be asked to wait outside the meeting space to respect everyone’s privacy and NOVA will be offering another program during this time called Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children. Darkness to Light is a two-hour training to educate, inform and prepare the community to deal with and prevent child sexual abuse.
