SAFE Laramie: Understanding Sexual Assault Reporting
Andy Glines, 2019
Early on in Andy’s SAFE Men experience, he felt strongly that sexual assault reporting options were misunderstood and hard to come by. With this thought driving his project, Andy created a reporting guide to help individuals in Laramie understand their options in reporting and receiving help in instances of sexual assault and domestic violence. Andy gathered “What to Expect” guides from organizations such as Laramie Police Department, Ivinson Memorial Hospital, Department of Family Services, SAFE Project, and 911 operators. Andy then collaborated with businesses in Laramie to post informational signs in bathrooms throughout the city outlining the information he collected. The guides will be posted throughout Laramie in early 2020.
"SAFE Men has been one of my life's greatest opportunities for personal growth and it has been an amazing experience. Becoming an active ally has been something I’ve wanted to do but lacked an understanding of how to become engaged. The information and insight I’ve obtained during SAFE Men Program is far greater than what I would have gathered on my own. After I graduate from the program, I want to continue to be engaged with SAFE Project and sexual assault prevention."
