Sexual assault, bystander intervention
focus of “No Woman Left Behind”

What: “No Woman Left Behind” campaign event

Where: Sacramento State’s University Union Redwood Room

When: 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 8

Who: Sacramento State’s Women’s Resource Center and the Sacramento State GAMMAs, a peer health education group, will host speakers as part of their “No Woman Left Behind” campaign, which encourages people to intervene during a sexual assault and to speak up for victims who cannot speak for themselves.

The featured speakers are Lauren Bryeans, Lauren Chief Elk and April Grolle, who, as college students, saved a female classmate from a sexual assault. They will discuss sexual assault and bystander intervention.

“With one in five women being sexually assaulted in the national collegiate world, this event is a reminder that it can happen anywhere,” says Jessica Heskin, Women’s Resource Center advocate and educator. These three women can serve as a huge inspiration to others,” she says.

The event is free and open to the public.

Contact: For event information, contact Sacramento State’s Women’s Resource Center at (916) 278-7388 or visit www.csus.edu/wrc/. For media assistance, contact Sacramento State’s Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
