About this Event

Please join us for a moderated panel discussion regarding how to improve community responses to sexual assault. Tickets are free but required due to space limitations. The panel discussion will be preceded by a reception with light refreshments from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Mary Rice, President of LWV Bloomington. The panelists include Jennifer Bjorhus, one of the lead journalists working on the Star Tribune's Denied Justice series, Nicole Matthews, Executive Director of the Minnesota Indian Woman’s Sexual Assault Coalition, John Choi, Ramsey County Attorney, Paul Schnell, Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Corrections, and Sarah Colford, a survivor and Board Member with Break the Silence. Both Ms. Matthews and Commissioner Schnell sat on the sexual assault task force convened by Attorney General Lori Swanson which recently issued a report with a long list of recommendations for the state legislature, law enforcement, county attorneys, and the Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Board. Questions for the panelists will be accepted in writing at the event, live on Twitter using the hashtag #StartByBelievingLWV, or in advance via email to lwvdakotacty@lwvmn.org.

The panel discussion will be broadcast live by the St. Paul Neighborhood Network (SPNN) and will also be rebroadcast at later dates. Dates and times of the rebroadcasts will be shared at lwvsp.org and lwvdakotacounty.org after the event.
