The only support center for sexual assault victims in Boulder County will host its 50th-anniversary fundraiser next week. Boulder created what has become MESA, Moving to End Sexual Assault, in response to a high-profile abduction, sexual assault, and shooting of two young girls in 1972. The service was one of only three similar programs across the nation. 

KGNU’s Alexis Kenyon spoke with Dr. Janine D’Anniballe, MESA’s longtime director. D’Anniballe is a nationally recognized expert in sexual assault and traumatic stress. Joining them was News Intern Claire Purnell.
