Clerk Uglis read into the record Resolution 2010-04.

Whereas, Every two and half minutes a person is raped in the United States and in Michigan, over 70 percent of rape victims are under the age of 20; and,

Whereas, Sexual assault is an intolerable, violent crime with extensive short and long-term implications for victims, their loved ones and to society as a whole; and,

Whereas, It is estimated that less than half of all sexual assaults are ever reported; and,

Whereas, The State of Michigan has a proud tradition of strong legislation intended to reduce the incidence of sexual assault and violence; and

Whereas, Elimination of sexual violence is achievable through change at the individual, family, community, organization, and societal levels; and

Whereas, Sexual Assault Awareness Month is an excellent opportunity for citizens to learn more about how to stop perpetration of sexual violence before it can start and to show support for the numerous organizations and individuals who provide critical advocacy, services, and assistance to sexual assault survivors; and,

Whereas, the Michigan Coalitions Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, the Michigan Domestic Violence Prevention and Treatment Board, and the Michigan Department of Community Health are dedicated to the elimination of all sexual violence in our state and to the empowerment of Michigan’s sexual assault survivors;

.

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE TOWNSHIP BOARD OF THE CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF CHESTERFIELD, BOARD OF TRUSTEES, MACOMB COUNTY, MICHIGAN does hereby join in with Governor Granholm and proclaim April 2010 Sexual Assault Awareness Month in Michigan.
