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.
