Nevada's First Lady, AlertID Up for Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Posted: Updated:

From AlertID:

Kathleen Sandoval, Nevada's First Lady, and Keli Wilson, AlertID's Founder, are teaming up to create awareness and support victims during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

According to government reports, a sexual assault occurs every two seconds in America. Unfortunately, these incidents are reported less frequently than any other violent crime as only a small percentage of brave survivors are willing to step forward to report their assaults and participate in the criminal justice process. With more than 200,000 reported incidents of sexual violence occurring each year, the group is working together in an effort to raise awareness and stress prevention of sexual assault as well as support victims.

Kathleen Sandoval, Nevada's First Lady and Director of Operations for The Children's Cabinet in Northern Nevada, plays a very active role in assisting, protecting and empowering families and children throughout the state and beyond.
"April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, provides an excellent opportunity to increase awareness throughout the world that sexual assault is NEVER justified. No ALWAYS means NO...no matter the situation", said Sandoval.

For AlertID's Founder, Keli Wilson, supporting victims is of great importance, but she also wants to emphasize the importance of prevention. AlertID informs you of the dangers in your neighborhood and allows you to communicate with neighbors very quickly. The free program offers crime and sex offender alerts, in addition to other important public safety alerts and prevention tips online, via email and on smartphones. According to Keli, "Information is power, and the more we are aware of the dangers in our neighborhoods and the more proactive we are, the better we can protect ourselves, our children and our families."
