Kirstyn Walker of the Ozarks Rape Crisis Center in Harrison joins “Around the Table” on KHOZ last week to talk about several topics including the increasing number of people they have helped during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Walker said that statistics have shown that most victims of Sexual Violence are attacked by people they know and with the COVID-19 Pandemic, many families are staying together for longer periods of time, increasing the potential for those crimes.
Walker also spoke about how parents can teach their children about the importance of consent at an early age as well as the need for more volunteers to man the 24 Hour Crisis Hotline.
