Balloon release for Sexual Assault Awareness Wednesday

By Staff | Apr 20, 2017

Rachel Schacherer of Estherville is organizing a release of teal-colored balloons for sexual assault awareness. Across the country, the teal ribbon represents awareness about sexual assault. In addition to the demonstration of support for survivors and advocates, the display of teal ribbons conveys a powerful message that there’s no place for sexual violence in the community. Numerous workplaces and groups are also sporting jeans for Denim Day, which takes place all day Wednesday. The community is invited to the balloon release to raise awareness and help end sexual violence in Emmet County. Outlet Store is a sponsor of the balloon release, and has provided the balloons.
