Awareness & Prevention Director
My name is Roxy Burkhart, and I am the Awareness and Prevention Director. I am lucky enough to call it my job to go out into the community and have vital conversations about these important topics. I have been an employee of Canyon Creek since 2016, and I have a strong passion for this work. I previously worked in our Victim Services Department as the Rape and Sexual Assault Victim Advocate. My time in that position has given me great experience and insight into my work today. I have extensive training in domestic and sexual violence, crisis intervention, advocacy, safety planning, public speaking, working with LGBTQ+ Community, suicide prevention training or QPR and sexual exploitation of children to name a few.

This presentation challenges the Bystander Effect. The bystander effect, or bystander apathy, is a social psychological phenomenon in which individuals are less likely to offer help to a victim when other people are present. The greater the number of bystanders, the less likely it is that one of them will help. In this presentation, we talk about how to be an “Upstander”.This training gives the tools needed to know how to intervene and help those in need, in situations ranging from bullying to sexual assault.
In this presentation, we discuss what Sexual Assault really is. It is an act in which a person intentionally sexually touches another person without that person's consent, or coerces or physically forces a person to engage in a sexual act against their will. Consent simply permission for something to happen or agreement to do something. Our sexual assault presentations will cover the statistics on sexual violence, myths surrounding sexual assault, who perpetrates this type of violence and how to help someone who has experienced sexual assault.
Human trafficking is the business of stealing freedom for profit. In some cases, traffickers trick, defraud or physically force victims into providing commercial sex.
