SOVAS and the 2011 Miss Penticton candidates and 2010 royalty have developed a date rape drug awareness and prevention campaign which is being presented to high school students and the community.
The project called “Watch Your Drink, Watch Your Friends” is funded by United Way and Telus and addresses awareness and prevention around the date rape drug.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU NEED HELP?
Tell your friends that you may have been drugged.
Go to the hospital.
Request a “rape kit” at the hospital if sexual assault is suspected.
