DSCC associates took steps against violence

By Dana Thornbury DLA Land and Mairitme Public Affairs

Defense Supply Center Columbus associates took an active approach in supporting Sexual Assault and Prevention and Response Month by participating in a 5K awareness run/walk event April 18.

The active approach goes beyond the physical demands of the 5K. Prior to the event, participants heard brief words from Defense Logistics Agency Land and Maritime and DSCC Commander Navy Rear Adm. John Palmer on the importance of bystander intervention.

The key to keeping friends and coworkers safe is learning how to intervene in a way that fits the situation and your comfort level. Having this knowledge on hand can give you the confidence to step in when something isn’t right. 

Associates can receive resources and additional information from the DLA Land and Maritime Sexual Assault Response Coordinator at 614-692-8846. For 24/7 response, call 1-800-841-0937.
