itsnotokCT Awareness-Reach out with a Ribbon-Pin
The Sexual Abuse Prevention and Awareness Task Force members will be “Reaching out with a Ribbon” to various people with ID/DD, friends, family, DDS staff, private providers and other Connecticut residents to spark a conversation to promote the importance of awareness and prevention of sexual assault and/or abuse. Once you receive the ribbon/pin, we encourage you to pass it along in order to continue to spread the word that April is Sexual Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month. We are also asking people to take a “selfie” sharing or wearing the ribbon that can be posted to #itsnotokCT.
Other things you can do to take action and spread the word!!!
- Cut and paste the below ribbon into your email address which can also be found on the DDS https://portal.ct.gov/dds/itsnotokCT/itsnotokCT
- Use the ribbon to customize your background while in a TEAMS meeting
- Go to the DDS website https://portal.ct.gov/dds/itsnotokCT/itsnotokCT to learn more about the various topics such as awareness, prevention, resources and empowerment
- Reach out with a Ribbon- by sending virtually (on-line) to an individual, staff, friend, neighbor, co-worker or family member. Once you receive a Ribbon, we encourage you to take action by sharing “reaching out” to promote conversations that April is Sexual Abuse Prevention and Awareness.
