In light of sexual misconduct allegations nationwide, conversation and action against sexual harassment, assault and domestic violence has been taken in communities nationwide.
To enlighten the community to the prevalence of these issues, Verde Valley Sanctuary will host a Sexual Harassment and Assault Workshop: What You Need to Know to Stay Safe on Saturday, Jan. 13 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Sedona Public Library. The workshop is intended to show people they are not alone, and there are available resources in the community.
“We felt that [the community] really didn’t know where to turn for help,” VVS Development Director Jennifer Perry said. “What we really need to be doing is talk about this issue of harassment and assault, and what you do when you are caught off-guard in a situation. So, we started brainstorming different ways to approach it.”
