We’re having a panel on how the Military #MeToo movement can improve handling of sex crimes at Fort Bragg and Fayetteville. Lots of problems with handling of sexual assault and sexual harassment in the military as you may have heard (#VanessaGuillen). The workload at Rape Crisis of Cumberland has increased a lot over the past few years, much of it helping sexual assault victims from Fort Bragg. At the first day of the NC NOW Conference on Oct 9, we are honored to have Deanne Gerdes, executive director of Rape Crisis, and also Captain Erin Scanlon a rape survivor turned advocate, as panelists.
