April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

What can you do?

Laws are necessary to bring justice, but true societal change is unlikely to ever come through government. Rather, it will come through people just like you and me who choose to see value in others and speak up for what is right. Refuse to be quiet and allow cultural norms to go unchanged.

BE A VOICE.

BELIEVE SURVIVORS.

CHALLENGE VICTIM BLAMING.

RESPECT BOUNDARIES.
