An online listening session this week will focus on helping Missouri’s sexual assault survivors.
A 13-member task force is holding four online public hearings – with the first one being Wednesday from 1 to 3 p.m.
The group was created as part of a 2020 Missouri law to make recommendations about the handling and response to sexual assault and identify ways the state could improve services for victims.
Wednesday’s session will focus on funding to help victims.
Survivors and others impacted by sexual assault are also invited to participate in an online survey to share their experiences.
The survey and the listening session can be found by searching online for Missouri Department of Public Safety sexual assault task force.
