We need your help!  April is Sexual Assault Awareness month and given that this is not a comfortable topic, we need your help bringing this issue to light.

The trauma of sexual violence leaves scars that may never fully heal unless the survivor is able to talk about it and receive counseling and support! Too often, survivors suffer in silence, fearing retribution, lack of support, or that the criminal justice system will fail to bring their perpetrator to justice.  Many survivors experience depression, fear, and suicidal feelings in the months and years following an assault, and some face health problems that last a lifetime.  We must do more to raise awareness about the realities of sexual assault, confront and change insensitive attitudes wherever they persist, enhance training and education in the criminal justice system, and expand access to critical health, legal, and protection services for survivors.  By talking about it during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we hope to encourage survivors to seek assistance, creating an atmosphere in which they feel safe to do so.  Join your voice to ours and help us raise awareness about this issue.
