This month, SAPR released a set of comic strips addressing different aspects of consent (featured below the article). Check out these talking points to learn more about consent and why Marines and the general public needs to be aware of its tenets.
People who are sexually assaulted are never alone – no matter when or where assistance is needed. Marines and their families have immediate access to resources and referrals by calling their installation’s 24/7 Sexual Assault Support Line.
Your friend calls and tells you the unthinkable. He/she has been sexually assaulted. Consider these "Dos" and "Don'ts" when offering support to a victim.
