We spoke with Tracy-Ann Evans, the Status of Women Coordinator.
The Status of Women had funding to send awareness on Sexual Violence.
Evans mentions that they had a training session with the local frontline workers with various organizations including Child Youth and Family Services and the Group Home.
The facilitators were from Newfoundland and Labrador Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre.
It was held on April 13, 2010. The training session was held on Tuesday afternoon.
This session went really well.
They received great resources like pamphlets and posters.
They also had a community session on Tuesday night.
Evans adds she is hoping to give awareness on this issue to other communities in the future.
