he told me not to tell:
Keep our communities safe by learning how to talk to young children about sexual assault, and teach them about the touching rules as a part of the larger context of everyday safety. You bring a group of friends together to discuss and KCSARC will provide the resources. Our booklet, he told me not to tell, and a short video from our Family Services Manager, are just two of the many resources that will be at your disposal to start the discussion. Contact Sarah Villian at (425) 282-0346 or email@example.com to get your resources today!
"Party in a Box":
BE LOUD by hosting a 100 Conversations party! Host a 100 Conversations party in your community- we'll help! We are offering 25 exclusive "party in a box" kits to help you End the Silence this April.
This "party in a box" contains decorations, instructions, party favors, a DVD, and talking cards for three conversations from the 100 Conversations toolkit. The conversations are related to media use and thinking critically about relationships that we see on TV and in movies- a great choice for parents and teens, teachers and students, or anyone who cares about sexual assault prevention.
