Presentations and Trainings

People Against Rape is actively working toward educating and engaging the community in the awareness and prevention of sexual assault. We work with middle and high schools, colleges, community organizations, law enforcement, SAPR advocates, prisons and jails, religious organizations, and more.  We look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
