Choose Respect Montgomery Hosting Webinars on Sexual Assault
Choose Respect Montgomery, an initiative from the Montgomery County Domestic Violence Coordinating Council, will host two webinars to address sexual assault, consent and healthy relationships, and to provide resources and education in light of national and local conversations and recent social media postings.
There will be two virtual webinars—one for parents and one for teens—with speakers from the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault.
The parent webinar will be held on Zoom from 6–7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 18. It will offer fundamental information about sexual assault, consent and healthy relationships; how to communicate with their children about these issues; and how to advocate for a safer community.
The student webinar will be held on Zoom from 6–7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 19. Teens will learn fundamental information about sexual assault, consent and healthy relationships; how they can use their influence to create safer environments and intervene in concerning situations; and how to support their friends.
