Victims of Sexual Assault to Be Honored During Vigil

In honor of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Montgomery County’s Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) will honor sexual assault victims during an event titled, “An Evening to Listen and Learn,” Tuesday, April 10 from 6 – 8 p.m.

SART is a multidisciplinary team in the county that works year-round on behalf of victims of sexual violence. Its goal is to make Montgomery County a place where victims can receive immediate comprehensive services, coordinated outreach, and assistance following a sexual assault or rape, according to a news release.

Tuesday’s speakers include representatives from Montgomery County State’s Attorney Office, Montgomery County Police Special Victims Unit and personal messages from survivors of sexual assault.

The event will be held at the Universities at Shady Grove, located at 9630 Gudelsky Drive in Rockville.

A vigil will be held after the event to honor sexual assault survivors.
