DoN SAPRO Aims to Educate with "Did You Know?" Series

WASHINGTON (NNS) — The Department of the Navy Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office (DoN SAPRO) will begin a monthly multimedia series titled “Did You Know?” in November 2014.

The series is intended to educate and inform Sailors and Marines on the different aspects of sexual assault prevention and response. Some examples of topics to be addressed include how sexual assault is defined in the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), the responsibilities of Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) and victim advocates, and various resources available to victims.

“The goal of this series is to continue educating our Sailors and Marines beyond annual SAPR training requirements,” said Jill Loftus, director, DoN SAPRO. “A better understanding of what defines a sexual assault, the knowledge that each and every victim will have quality care and support, and the importance of bystander intervention will help to continue the increase of sexual assault reporting.”

Each month, a different topic will be presented via article, blog, infographic or through social media ensuring a wide audience is reached.

“The use of different forms of multimedia will allow us to present the information in creative ways,” said Loftus.
