The Freeh Report is available…

The Freeh Report on the Penn State investigation (re: the Sandusky case) is now available -

You can read what the New York Times has to say about the report here. Or the full report here.

Certainly for some reading these articles and reports will be challenging, for others angering – for all of us it should be a wake up call.  This should have never happened – sexual and relationship violence in all its forms should never happen. To anyone. Ever.

If you feel you want to talk about what you read – please contact RISE or call one of the many service providers out there – in the Asheville, NC area that can be Our Voice and nationally there is RAINN (which will connect you to a local agency).

While I am currently reading the full report – the NYT article is troubling.  Colleges and universities across the US need to take a moment to read and consider what is in this report – and then take appropriate action to see that this cannot happen again.  To anyone.  Ever.

RISE is committed to ending every form of relationship violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sexual harassment.  If you or someone you know wants to talk, is looking for support, wants to begin to heal, wants to end violence.  Talk to us.  Get involved.
