Community organization holds sexual assault seminar

LAWTON, Okla._ The organization Teaching Lives Compassionately held a women's sexual assault awareness seminar for the public Saturday at the Owens Center.

This is the first time that the organization has put on a sexual assault seminar, but felt they needed to because of the consistently growing number of assault victims.

 

Event coordinator Lisa Willis said that seminars like the one held Saturday are a good start.

"If we can start by educating them, giving them some tools so they can be aware of their surroundings, hopefully they will not become a victim. Start with the young people, to just pay attention, understand that it's important, and it can save lives," said Willis.

 

Willis suggests that if a person does become a victim of sexual assault to call someone.

Statistically, one in every five women will become a victim of sexual assault.
