New Hampshire violence prevention advocates like Pamela Keilig, public policy specialist for the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, say the bill, HB1533, could have a significant impact on preventing sexual violence in New Hampshire, where one in four women and one in 20 men have reported being sexually assaulted, according to the coalition.
“Because of this education, students have come to understand what healthy relationship dynamics look like and learn how to identify unhealthy relationships and grooming behaviors, all important skills that will have long-lasting impacts on their development as they grow into mature adults,” Keilig told lawmakers. “What this legislation proposes will only improve our response as a state to ending sexual violence as we continue to maximize our efforts to prevent abuse before it occurs.”
