Speak up Speak out

Posted: Updated:
(04/29/14) - Crime statistics show Genesee County has one of the highest rates of sexual assault in Michigan.

Tuesday, the YWCA of Greater Flint is hosting Speak Up Speak Out as part of of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

It's meant to encourage women and men to speak out against rape.

Survivors of sexual assault shared their stories of recovery.

Mayor Dayne Walling and Prosecutor David Leyton also spoke about steps to end sexual assault in Flint and Genesee County.

There was a spoken word performance and a moment of silence to honor victims of sex crimes.
