A new sexual assault awareness campaign has been launched in the Jacksonville Beach area.
Councilor Rory Diamond, along with Mayor Elaine Brown, Mayor Ellen Glasser, Mayor Chris Hoffman and the Jacksonville, Inc. Women’s Center, announced this Tuesday morning.
With the spring break approaching, the three beach towns came together to promote the sexual assault awareness campaign, which is aimed at the large number of students and young adults visiting the area. Flyers and other advertisements are posted in local restaurants, bars, and hotels on Jacksonville, Neptune, and Atlantic beaches.
The campaign is the result of Bill 2020-0111, passed by the Jacksonville City Council on February 25, 2020.
The bill provides $ 10,000 from the city council’s Operating Contingency Fund for a sexual assault advertising campaign targeting the Jacksonville, Inc. Women’s Center.
