Sexual Assault Response 101 Panel

Get the inside scoop from first-responders about what you can do if you or a friend experiences sexual assault, stalking, drug-facilitated assault or interpersonal-violence. 

 

This  conversation will be guided by common student questions, such as: Who do I call first for help? Is help available, even in the middle of the night? Can I be charged for under-age drinking or drug-use if I am seeking help? What do I do if I, or a friend, has been drugged?

 

The panel of first-responders will include representatives from the Missoula Police Department, University of Montana Police Department, YWCA Missoula, SARC (Student Advocacy Resource Center), and First STEP (Sexual Trauma Evaluation Program).
