April 1, 2020 is Start by Believing Day! Start by Believing is an awareness campaign created to end the cycle of silence and change the way society responds to sexual assault. The Summit County Prosecutor’s Office Starts By Believing. Did you know that victims/survivors typically disclose to friends or family first? If your reaction to survivors of sexual assault comes from a place of belief and support rather than doubt or blame, victims/survivors will be more likely to seek help and report what happened to them. Your reaction makes a difference! Join Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh in supporting survivors of sexual assault and Start by Believing.

The Summit County Prosecutor’s Office is starting a new public awareness campaign called “Why I’m A Prosecutor”. The goal of this new campaign is to inform the community of what it’s like to be a prosecutor. From the best part, to the most difficult part, to the most memorable cases, we hope to provide insight to what it means to be a prosecutor and help keep the community safe.
