NWSGP      Comments Off on Successful booths for awareness

In promoting awareness on sexual and domestic violence, Native Women’s Society of the Great Plains provided information, incidents and resources at a booth at major events throughout the year. Incentives were provided for booth visitors to fill out a short evaluation on sexual assault awareness. The information on the evaluations are used the help membership understand the levels of awareness of sexual violence in their communities. Booth2BHpowwowBooth1 Another feature of the booths is photos of booth visitors with signs on sexual violence awareness, that were posted on the NWSGP social media site. The site has more than 10,000 followers.
