In this Human Teal Ribbon event, we will have people wear teal t-shirts, line up and form a fifty foot human teal ribbon. We are trying to bring awareness to sexual assault. We are providing a lot of resources here for survivors and co-survivors, which are close relatives, friends of survivors, making them to be able to support each other and create a good networks between them.”
Everyone who attended the event could get a free teal t-shirt and other sexual assault awareness giveaways in support of survivors and their families.
