April Is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Tennessee’s historic state capitol will be silhouetted in blue-green lighting this weekend to raise awareness for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The teal lighting will be featured Friday, April 1 through Sunday, April 3, the first three days of the national observation in April.
According to Office of Criminal Justice Programs Director Jennifer Brinkman, the latest data show that three-fourths of sexual assaults in Tennessee were not committed by random strangers but by someone known to the victim…and almost one in five sexual assault cases involves a family member.
