Author and Advocate Jennifer Storm:
Responds to Serena Williams's comments about the Steubenville rape case: "...consent should not be taken, it should be given. We must better educate society about the impact of alcohol facilitated sexual assault. It is the most common form of sexual assault and the most misunderstood."
Storm is reaching out to increase awareness about the ill-effects of alcohol abuse and sexual assault facing young populations today.
Storm will be presenting at the IVAT Conference in San Diego, California on September 8-12.
