Teal Ribbon Campaign 2016

Teal Ribbon Campaign 2016

In recognition of April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month,
The Sexual Assault Program of NSLC will be tying teal ribbons,
with each city’s permission of course, around the towns of Chisholm, Hibbing & Virginia.
Each ribbon honors an individual survivor of sexual violence from our local communities.
You may notice that no two ribbons are exactly alike in their shape, size and/or shade of teal.
In the programs 32 year history; the youngest victim was a three month old infant and the eldest an 89 year old woman.
Sexual violence has no boundaries. It's about predatory behavior and the vulnerabilities and availability of its victims.
Sexual Violence continues to be a public health concern.
Unaddressed trauma has a ripple effect upon us all. It effects individuals, families and our communities
