April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and that is a heavy topic. The conversations may be hard, but Deb Bonner, Preventionist and Community Advocate with Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault, knows they have to happen. She says a big part of her job is education to help prevent a horrific event from occurring.
PCASA offers different programs to help with the education aspect, but Bonner says it can’t be just a one time thing.
There is research backing up the effectiveness of these programs. Bonner believes that they should be right up there with other programs that get repetition throughout a students schooling life.
PCASA offers a podcast on their website for those who want to learn anytime.
Bonner appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
