Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and the city of Atlanta recently launched a campaign aimed at increasing awareness and prevention of sexual assault.
The campaign, titled ?Take a Stand,? offers resources to both women and men on how to guard their personal safety or get help quickly in the event of an emergency and features a short film about sexual assault and prevention as well as several public service announcements (PSAs).
