MCCC To Host Program on Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention
This comes to us from Montgomery County Community College…
In partnership with the Montgomery County Sexual Assault Task Force, Montgomery County Community College (MCCC) will screen “Speak Out and Stand Up,” a 25-minute video and program about the serious topic of sexual assault. A discussion panel, comprised of law enforcement, probation, parole and health and victim advocates, will follow the video.
The program will take place this Thursday, Oct. 11 from 12:45-2 p.m. at MCCC’s West Campus, South Hall Community Room, 101 College Drive, Pottstown. The program is free and open to the public.
Hosted by “Twilight” actress Kristen Stewart, “Speak Out and Stand Up” will raise dialogue about sexual assault as a community issue. The docudrama includes diverse student voices and experts in the field of sexual assault. Dramatized scenes highlight the impact of sexual assault on the victim, as well as the important roles of friends and bystanders.
The program is part of a collaborative effort among the following organizations: Montgomery County Adult Probation and Parole Department, Montgomery County Juvenile Probation Department, Pottstown and Whitpain Township Police departments, Victim Services of Montgomery County, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, Resources for Human Development, Magellan Health Services, and Montgomery County Community College.
