DECATUR - One local organization is working with central Illinois communities to raise sexual assault awareness.
Growing Strong Sexual Assault Center officials say the group offers victims of sexual abuse a chance to heal through their many therapy options. One non-conventional style allows clients a way to express their emotions without using words; sand tray counseling.
Growing Strong's legal advocate Stefanie Moreau said, "It's a very non confrontational way for victim's to talk through their abuse."
Growing Strong also teamed up with Millikin University Thursday night for the annual Take Back the Night event. During the event, students and community members joined together to march on campus and grow stronger together for those who are voiceless victims.
