#MeToo.  Less than a month ago, those 6 characters lit up the Internet.  Alyssa Milano helped give the world a sense of the magnitude of the problem of sexual assault and harassment.  Emboldened by Alyssa’s courage to say something, women began telling their stories.  It’s hard to believe that 6 characters can release a million stories, but they did.

One of the best collection of stories can be found here (http://www.chosenmag.com/metoo-ending-the-silence-surrounding-sexual-harassment-and-assault-part-i/2017/10/17/metoo-ending-the-silence-surrounding-sexual-harassment-and-assault-part-i).  They are powerful stories, well written and raw.  There are so many of them, it’s a 3-part series, plus a video titled “Dear Men”.  (credit author: Chris Heide).  We hope you take the time to read the stories.  Sexual assault is a problem with long-lasting effects for the victim and those who love them.

After you read the stories – come back.  Relias Academy has spotlighted the course “Sexual Assault Investigations”.

This course was designed for Police Officers who investigate sexual assaults.  Academy is offering this course to help people see “the other side”, and learn a little bit about what Officers are taught to expect and how to react while investigating sexual assaults.

As usual, 50% of the proceeds from the sales of this course will go to RAINN – the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization.  To learn more about RAINN, click here: https://www.rainn.org/
