Speak: SAVES Advocates Visit

Today we were lucky enough to have two guest speakers from the Sexual Assault Victims Emergency Services (SAVES). SAVES is located on Main Street in Farmington. Kristen Plummer and Jeb Murphy planned an eye-opening activity for us.

It was interesting to hear the facts and statistics about how many men and women are sexually assaulted in this country. This information was definitely alarming. It was also interesting to read and hear your contributions to this discussion. We'll have to see if we can make connections between what we talked learned about today to Melinda's experience in the book.

We'll invite Kristen and Jeb to come back and speak with us after we've read more of this book. Thanks to Kristen and Jeb and SAVES for helping to prepare us to read and talk about this sensitive topic!
