You may see a few teal ribbons being worn during April, and the reason for that is Sexual Assault Awareness month, now in its 20th year, and just as topical as it has ever been.

Tennant Creek Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) kicked the month off at the Hospital with a BBQ, cake and conversations that will hopefully carry on beyond this month.

Other events are planned for the month including information sessions at both the Primary and High Schools, as well as Personal Safety sessions for both women and Seniors.

If you, or anyone you know, has been affected by sexual assault, get in contact with the Sexual Assault Referral Centre at 45 Schmidt Street for confidential assistance.
