Megan EwbankMr. SevertGovernment14 March 2019Sexual assault in America●Raise awareness in the community about the issue through a pamphlet or presentationAwareness for sexual assault has risen in recent years due to the #MeToo movement and activists but the severity of the problem still hasn’t reached many people yet. We as a community need to raise awareness of consent and sexual assault to our youths, students, military officers, etc. So we should first create a pamphlet or a presentation.●Give facts and statisticsIn order for the severity of the situation to really sink in, I will provide statistics in a pamphlet such as: 995/1000 of sexual assault perpetrators will walk free. 230/1000 arereported to the ploce. 46/1000 reports lead to an arrest, 9/1000 cases get referred to prosecutors. 5/1000 cases will lead to felony convictions. These numbers are alarming considering the courage it must have taken to report a case and go to court. Which brings another issue to light. Judges in court don’t always believe the victim’s testimony.
