Senators recognize Tanna Prince’s commitment to sexual assault survivors

Tanna Prince, senior vice president and consultant in Las Vegas, saw injustice and victim blaming as she sat on the jury for a sexual assault trial. She wanted to help victims who had been through similar trauma. After hearing about the Rape Crisis Center (RCC), she dropped in to volunteer and ended up staying 10 years She has served as a board member and president but this year she is handing over the reins. A decade after starting with the organization, United State Senators Jacky Rosen and Catherine Cortez Masto and Nevada legislators Dina Titus and Steven Horsford, recognized Tanna for her commitment to survivors during RCC’s annual fundraiser luncheon and their 45th anniversary.

“When Tanna does something, she does it all the way,” said Daniele Staple, RCC executive director. “She committed to building the board with great people and developing the organizational infrastructure. She is leaving the organization better, stronger and healthier than when she found it.”

RCC’s anniversary and annual luncheon coincided with the 20th anniversary of Denim Day, a court decision in Italy that shed light on victim blaming and the common consequences of sexual assault.

“We are so proud of Tanna and her commitment to the Las Vegas community,” said Debbie Gray, senior vice president and regional operations leader. “Her commitment to the Rape Crisis Center embodies and demonstrates Lockton’s ongoing commitment to our community.”   

During Tanna’s tenure with RCC, the center received increased grants for group counseling and therapy sessions for survivors and their families. She and the volunteer board led the effort to train nightclub staff in Las Vegas to respond to sexual assault situations. The center provides education in elementary, middle and high school classrooms where students learn about dealing with sexual assault, and the organization has a 24-hour hotline with  a 50-hour training curriculum for those answering the calls. Today, RCC also provides court advocacy for survivors going through the legal system.

“RCC is poised to start its second half century with more programs and resources than at any point in our history,” Tanna said. “Thanks to the dedicated staff and board members, I can step away knowing RCC is in good hands.”

Tanna has been with Lockton for more than 14 years. In-between business and family, she made a commitment to RCC. Debbie Gray was on hand with Connie Hill, vice president and Signature Client Group consultant, and Angie Sweiven, Las Vegas Associate, to celebrate Tanna’s recognition during the luncheon.  While she is stepping down from RCC, her philanthropic mission isn’t over.

Her next adventure is taking her to Cambodia with KindredHouse, an organization that advocates for long-term community education, health, and development solutions. Approximately 80% of Cambodians do not have access to a toilet. This summer she is traveling there with other volunteers to help build toilets in rural communities.
