More than 100 community members, agency representatives and students gathered April 19, 2017 for DASAS’ Sexual Assault Forum. Held in conjunction with Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the event aimed to increase knowledge of dynamics associated with sexual abuse, reduce barriers, and equip participants with knowledge and tools to engage and understand victims of sexual abuse. The event was made possible through a partnership with Glen Oaks Community College and a grant from the Sturgis Area Community Foundation.
