At the Sexual Abuse Community Awareness event you'll have the chance to meet with local support agencies who will give you resources and information on sexual abuse. There will also be many local vendors, a kids area with crafts, face painting and tattoos as well as story time. For adults, there will be Zumba and Yoga.
