Morningside College will host a program on sexual assault prevention and awareness featuring several individuals from local agencies on Thursday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. in the UPS Auditorium of the Lincoln Center, 3627 Peters Avenue.
The public is invited to the free event, which is sponsored by Morningside’s Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS).
“The purpose of the event is to discuss ways to prevent sexual assault and we will try to demonstrate to the audience ways they can develop their own personal safety plans,” said Dr. Brenda Crawford, personal counselor for student services at Morningside College and the organizer of the event.
Crawford will also be one of the presenters at the event. Other presenters will include Deputy A.J. Fundermann of the Woodbury County Sheriff Department; Officer Jeanette McFee of the South Sioux City, Neb., Police Department; Amber Hupe-Monney, victim advocate for the Dakota County Victim Assistance Program in South Sioux City; Janet Grossnickle, victim advocate at the Council on Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence in Sioux City; and Jane Sanders, addiction specialist at Jackson Recovery Centers Inc. in Sioux City.
