April is sexual assault and awareness month and in hopes to raise awareness Mayor Sharon Weston Broome and a local organization called “STAR” have made it their long-term mission to stand against a growing problem in Louisiana.
In honor of the many brave survivors and allies who chose to speak up and end their silence of sexual violence, “STAR” is hosting their 4th annual “Champions of Change” breakfast event fundraiser.
Representative Helena Moreno of District 93 and Alex Juan from the Louisiana Department of Veteran’s Affairs are the two honorees who will be recognized during the event.
They were chosen to honor these women because they have implemented change to help further “STAR’s” mission which are sexual assault and domestic violence legislative reform, equal pay initiatives and military policy reform for sexual assault.
The event will start from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the L’Auberge Casino and Hotel.
