On Wednesday, May 1, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., in the lobby at headquarters, the Toronto Police Service will be joined by the Honourable Laurel Broten, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore and Minister Responsible for Women's Issues and Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, to kick off Sexual Assault Awareness Month in partnership with the Toronto Police Service's Sexual Assault Advisory Committee and students from Seneca College's Graphic Design program.
This year's theme is "Report Support" and the Toronto Police Service will be working with its community partners to encourage survivors of sexual assault to tell their story by reporting it to police and seeking support in the community.
A graphic arts campaign by Seneca College students and a video message from a sexual assault survivor will be featured.
Members of the media are invited to attend the event. The campaigns and the video will be posted on the Toronto Police Service's website and social media accounts. Follow #sexassault or #saam2013 on Twitter or visit us on Facebook for event details.
