LISTEN HERE: http://news.kgnu.org/2019/01/government-shutdown-impacts-survivors-of-sexual-assault/

Brie Franklin, Executive Director of the Colorado Coalition against Sexual Assault (CCASA) says that in Colorado we’re seeing the impact in rural communities and with small organizations that don’t have a large reserve of funds. “Particularly in rural communities it’s not just your rape crisis center, a lot of victims also need other types of services and so any type of services around housing or food stamps, so any of those other kind of social service net, with those not being available or workers being furloughed or offices being closed, they’re not able to access those.”
