This week on Spotlight On Maryland, Gina Crash spoke with Marissa Jachman, Director of the Erin Levitas Foundation, and Dr. Quince Hopkins, a gender violence and restorative justice expert, and the Director of the Erin Levitas Initiative for Sexual Assault Prevention at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.
Marissa spoke about what inspired the family to start the Foundation in Erin's honor that works to prevent sexual assault through early education. Dr. Quince talked about her work designing an evidence-based research program for the Foundation, including a new curriculum that will introduce students to the concept of addressing difficult subjects through open dialogue.
We also talked about the Foundation's second annual Virtual Stroll And Roll coming up on Saturday, May 1, 2021. For more information about the fundraiser and the Erin Levitas Foundation, visit ErinLevitas.org. You can also find the Foundation on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
