It's happening right here in Allen County and the month of April has been designated to bring awareness to the problem. Working Against Violence for Everyone, or WAVE also plans a community discussion later in April.

"Individuals", reads a press release provided by WAVE, "can embrace their voices to show their support for survivors, stand up to victim blaming, shut down rape jokes, correct harmful misconceptions, promote everyday consent, and practice healthy communications with children".


Writing words of encouragement and strength for survivors of sexual assault, branch by branch, participants crafted together a "healing tree". Almost one in two women and one in five men have experienced sexual violence other than rape in their lifetime.

East Texans came out Wednesday to support those affected by sexual assault in the city of Lufkin's annual, "Prevention in the Park". They also highlight a 2015 survey in which 40 percent of women reported experiencing intimate partner violence and one out of every three women reported experiencing sexual violence at some time in their lives. The week started off with a self-defense workshop, sponsored by MSU's It's On Us student group.
