Bipartisan Taskforce to End Sexual Violence

Rep. Annie Kuster is hoping a new bipartisan task force will help bring an end to sexual violence – and she’s working on it with the teenager at the center of the St. Paul’s School sexual-assault case PAVE Ambassador Chessy Prout.

Sexual assault survivor and PAVE Ambassador Chessy Prout was back in New Hampshire in April for the first time since the 2015 trial of former Saint Paul’s School student Owen Labrie. Chessy was there speaking at a panel with Congresswoman Annie Kuster for the Bipartisan Taskforce to End Sexual Violence.
