Since 2001, April has been nationally declared as Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In hopes of raising awareness for this cause, the Siletz CARE Program will be holding a free screening of the documentary film, The Hunting Ground, Wednesday, April 13th,
6pm-9pm, Siletz Tribal Community Center. This film brings to light the epidemic of sexual assault on college campuses across the U.S. and the ways in which many colleges have failed victims in the past by covering up reports and silencing survivors. It also shows how strong survivors can be when they decide to take action and raise their voices.
The film screening is free and open to anyone age 17 and up. Children age 14-16 may attend with a parent. This is a great opportunity for students who are about to leave for college, or their parents, to learn about the realities of sexual assault on college campuses.
The Siletz CARE Program works to end domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking in our community. We provide advocacy services to victims as well as working with the community to raise awareness through a variety of events and activities. We also work to educate youth on healthy relationships and violence prevention as well as provide training to professionals and community members.
