sexual violence

More than $2 million in federal funds is going towards Kentucky programs fighting violence against women.  

Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Secretary John Tilley says the funding will be made available through the STOP Violence Against Women Act Grant Program.

Take Back the Night is an event held by organizations dedicated to helping women achieve safety and empowerment. However, this night is not for women only. Organizers encourage men, women, and children of all ages to attend. Violence is a dark part of society that affects us all. Take Back the Night seeks to end sexual violence in all of its forms including sexual assault, sexual abuse, dating violence, and domestic violence.
