Kander Puts Spotlight on Safe at Home for Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Jason Kander today joined law enforcement, victim advocates and health practitioners across the nation in raising awareness about the prevalence and impact of sexual assault. As part of the effort for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Kander highlighted his office’s Safe at Home program that helps keep survivors of sexual assault, rape, domestic violence and stalking safe from their assailants.
"My office will continue to do everything it can to protect survivors of sexual assault," Kander said. "Our Safe at Home program is focused on protecting and supporting victims in their time of need."
Safe at Home helps keep more than 1,000 Missourians safe by allowing them to use a substitute address when creating new public records with state and local government agencies. The secretary of state’s office then receives all first-class and legal mail at the substitute address and forwards it to the participants’ confidential locations.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month takes place every April.
