Sexual violence is happening across Wyoming. We can take the time to learn about sexual violence and how our attitudes about it influence others.
Sexual violence perpetration impacts many areas of victims' lives, including the lives of the people close to them and their communities. It is worth our time to learn the truth about sexual violence and how we can prevent it; we can learn about this on our own and by connecting with our local domestic violence sexual assault programs. In addition, the Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault is available to provide education and resources to assist in mobilizing your community to prevent sexual violence.
