In recognition of September as National Campus Safety Awareness Month and October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Palm Beach County Victim Services & Certified Rape Crisis Center hosted a media day on Wednesday, September 23. The result helped to build direct communications between media and victims of crime.
Held at the Victim Services Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) Center, local reporters, photographers, commissioners and representatives from the Palm Beach County Legislation met with empowered survivors who are effecting social change.
The 2 sessions featured hour panel discussion with Survivor Action Team members regarding their victimization including sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking and homicide. The Media Day raised awareness, brought media attention and national momentum for ending and preventing violence.
