There's been a nationwide increase the last couple of weeks in survivors of sexual assault seeking some type of crisis counseling. The Ford-Kavanaugh testimony, senate hearings, and tomorrow's confirmation vote have triggered a lot of survivors into reliving their own assaults. KNAU's Gillian Ferris spoke with victim-witness advocates Hollie Vargas and Kristen Ribich about the experience of being re-traumatized, and victim resources available in northern Arizona.

Poetry Friday: The Sound of Peace

Oct 5, 2018
Frieda Andersen

International Day of Peace was a couple of weeks ago, and school kids in Flagstaff celebrated in some very creative ways. You may have seen the aerial photo of hundreds of Killip Elementary students forming a giant human peace symbol. And if you were anywhere near the Flagstaff Junior Academy, you may have HEARD the sound of peace. Students gathered in the courtyard to sing the song, “Light a Candle for Peace”. With the help of music teacher Robin Zacharias, their voices – and their message – make-up this week’s Poetry Friday segment.
