California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger observed April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month and released to following public statement:
“Greetings to everyone observing Sexual Assault Awareness Month. As Governor, keeping our citizens safe is my highest priority, and I applaud all those who are devoted to stopping sexual assault and helping those who have been victimized by this horrible crime. …
“The perpetrators must answer to justice, and the victims must have resources and opportunities to heal. Your actions are ensuring that these goals become realities, and I commend you for your dedication to your fellow Californians. Thanks to your concern, our Golden State is an even better — and safer — place to call home.”
“Please accept my best wishes for a memorable observance and continued success in your noble endeavors. Sincerely, Arnold Schwarzenegger”
CALCASA will continue to work with the Governor and the Legislature to meet our commitment to ending sexual violence in our communities.
