Public Safety Day
A Safe Place sponsored and participated in Nantucket’s 2019 Public Safety Day in the Nantucket Elementary School parking lot on August 6, 2019. This was a great opportunity to meet and collaborate with multiple agencies including the Nantucket Fire and Police Departments, U.S. Coast Guard, Nantucket County Sheriff, Massachusetts State and Environmental Police, Nantucket Harbor Master, Lifeguards, Nantucket Memorial Airport Rescue, Boston MedFlight and the Department of Public Works. A Safe Place was on hand to distribute information regarding our services and promotional items for the agency to the many children and adults who stopped by our table.
National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC)
A Safe Place Advocates, Crystal and Suzanne, attended the 2019 National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania August 21-23 thanks to a Massachusetts Office For Victim Assistance (MOVA) Victim Services Training Grant that A Safe Place received. The conference itself was sponsored by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. The NSAC is a two and a half day, advocacy-based conference providing advanced training opportunities and information regarding sexual violence intervention and prevention. Crystal and Suzanne will be sharing information that they learned at one of the agency’s upcoming staff meetings.
