Times Union: Troy Faces, Landmarks Part of New Violence Prevention Campaign

The Times Union published a story about “Take a Stand, Troy,” a new initiative to prevent interpersonal violence in our communities. “Take a Stand, Troy” is led by the Sexual Assault and Crime Victims Assistance Program (SACVAP), an affiliate of St. Peter’s Health Partners.

From the story:

… posters will be offered to any business willing to have staff participate in 30-45-minute trainings by SACVAP based on a program called Mentors in Violence Prevention, said program Director Lindsey Crusan-Muse. The idea is to have a poster indicate that a place is safe for people who feel vulnerable.

“We want the posters to signify that this is a business where staff is trained, so people can receive support and assistance,” Crusan-Muse said.
