Retired Wilkes-Barre City Police Chief Joseph T. Coyne recently made a $2,000 donation to Victims Resource Center.
In response to such statistics, on Luzerne County Community College’s main campus Thursday, April 14, 2016 volunteers worked to raise awareness and start the discussion on domestic violence and sexual assault. With April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the event was part of the NO MORE campaign with the goal of starting the conversation to make a change by raising awareness and engaging bystanders to help end the violence.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. It is a time to call attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and impacts every person in this com- munity. Rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment harm our community, and statistics show one in five women and one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives.
