Michigan First Lady gives talk about on-campus sexual assault
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Michigan's First Lady Sue Snyder said it is time to speak-up about on-campus sexual assault.
Snyder gave a talk at Grand Rapids Community College's Consortium on Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
She was also expected to make an announcement about her initiative to end campus sexual assault.
Snyder is getting involved because she says it's a matter that hits close to home.
"Putting an end to sexual assaults on our college and university campuses our student's homes away from home is something that needs to continue to be a high priority," Snyder said. "We have already taken tremendous steps in finding ways to increase awareness and prevention of campus assaults, but there is still more work to be done."
A summit on campus sexual assault will be held on Friday, Sept. 30 at the North Campus Research Complex at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
