April is Sexual Assault Awareness month and Teen Peer Advocates Program (TPAP) is hosting a series of virtual presentations by youth advocates on topics surrounding gender based violence. These presentations are free and open to the community, but RSVP is required. Please share widely! A zoom link will be shared out to all registered participants.
In the military it is instilled in you that the person to your left and right may one day be responsible for saving your life. The worst-case scenario is you could be on the battlefield and must depend on someone you don’t know to help you survive. That’s powerful and it stays with you long after you leave service. I believe this is an unspoken bond, unique to Veterans. And in my opinion, that this is why the effects of sexual violence in the military are even harder to overcome; Veterans often struggle long after they leave the service.
