Beyond Words: Sexual Assault Awareness Month

The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour (Original Air Date: September 5, 2018) — Despite the successful efforts of the #MeToo campaign to increase awareness around sexual assault and harassment, survivors and survivor advocates say that there is still a significant amount of work to be done. In April 2018, the Hinckley Institute featured a forum on the history and culture of sexual violence. The event was part of an effort to educate, raise awareness and reinvigorate sexual assault prevention efforts—and was timed to coincide with Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The panelists included: Utah Democratic Rep. Angela Romero, D-Salt Lake City; Utah juvenile defense attorney and advocacy and prevention training specialist Nubia Peña; and Utah Criminal Justice Center Director and professor with the University of Utah’s College of Social Work Rob Butters.

The forum was recorded on April 11, 2018.
