Catchy phrases like “No means no” and “If you don’t get it then you don’t get it” flashed across a large screen at the Emergency Services auditorium in Goshen, along with pictures of members of government and law enforcement holding signs with written statements about sexual assault.
“It’s on us to take responsibility for our actions and our inactions” wrote Port Jervis Mayor Kelly Decker on his sign. “It’s up to us to stand up to those who tell us it’s not our business,” wrote former county Department of Mental Health Commissioner, Chris Ashman.
A video depicting situations of sexual assault played to Lady Gaga singing, “You don’t know how it feels till it happens to you.”
