Sex Assault in Canada: Presentation and Discussion
Tue, 16 May 2017, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM MDT
Sexual Assault is continuing to be a social concern, but data on this sensitive topic is often controversial with conflicting statistics and debate over what is and isn't sexual assault.
This presentation offers information to attendees on:
-The history of sexual law reform in Canada
-The cause of conflicting statistics and what they mean
-The impact of sexual assault on those that experience it, and their loved ones
-The profile of persons with serial sexual offending behaviours
-The disconnect between the laws and the enforcement of such laws.
-Local resources for help for persons who experience sexual assault.
The presenter is Angel Sumka, president of Alberta Sex Positive Education and Community Centre. Angel is a university student with a social science certificate, criminology certificate, criminology degree, love coach certificate and is in the midst of completing a BA (Psychology). She is a survivor of sexual abuse.
