PASADENA — AGBU Hye Geen and the Young Circle are at the forefront of a social movement to combat sexual harassment by organizing a public awareness debate.

Then Rouman Ebrahim J.D., a veteran Deputy District Attorney, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Cyber Crime Division will speak about the legal aspects in the investigation and prosecution of sexual assault cases.
Finally, Shaheh Shabanian M.S.W. a prevention specialist at Strength United Men C.A.R.E. (Creating Attitudes for a rape free environment) will speak about educational workshops on topics related to sexual assault prevention on campus.
