A forum on sexual assault is being held at Western Connecticut State University today. It's being hosted by Senator Richard Blumenthal as part of a statewide series. The first roundtable discussion was held in January at Fairfield University.
The discussion with students in Danbury is the 4th.
The roundtable discussion is entitled "Sexual violence is not a women's issue; it's a societal issue". Blumenthal says while law enforcement must be improved, society as a whole can lead by example. He is interested in hearing from victim advocates, students and administrators about their experience and views on how to eliminate this type of crime.
