Seek Then Speak, a new tool to support sexual assault victims, is now available as a free resource for the City of Coolidge. It is part of a new initiative brought to the community by the Coolidge Police Department.
Seek Then Speak helps sexual assault victims and their support people gather information, explore options, and take action. It’s available on the web, via mobile app, or by phone. Each option helps victims better understand what happened, explains their rights, and links them with resources and support. Victims can also begin the process of reporting to authorities or they can remain anonymous.
If you know someone who has been sexually assaulted, you may not know what to say or do.You may worry about saying the wrong thing or making things worse. Seek Then Speak can help. Sometimes the best response is the simplest: “I’m sorry this happened. How can I help?
