MAHEC Hosts Lunch-n-Learn – Sexual Violence in GLBTQ Communities

April marks Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a time when people come together around the country to recognize survivors of sexual violence and work to prevent future violence. This year MAHEC will host Our VOICE in hopes that participants will have a greater understanding of the legal protections for GLBTQ individuals and discuss the health impacts of sexual violence in the GLBTQ community. Our local prevention efforts and educational programs are always available to other organizations.

Hosted by: MAHEC’s Diversity Resource Council Lunch-n-Learn Cultural Awareness Series.
