There was a strong turn out for the Fourth Annual Sexual Assault Awareness Walk on April 24th.
At least 100 concerned community members braved the cold and rain to take part in the candlelight walk. Participants included members of the military, police officers, Dakota County District Attorney Jim Backstrom and Burnsville City Council Member Mary Sherry.
360 Communities presented Kelly Nicholson, victim witness program supervisor for the Dakota County Attorney's office, with the Community Caring Award for her work to end domestic violence and sexual assault in our communities.
Sexual assault survivor Janine Montgomery also shared her experiences with sexual violence and talked about the importance of staying alert to the signs of sexual abuse in others.
