ASK AN ADVOCATE
As COVID-19 continues to disrupt our daily lives, Advocates are adjusting!
To continue responding to concerns in our community and offering educational opportunities, we’ve launched a new, interactive program online called Ask an Advocate. In these live events Advocates and guests respond to questions we’ve collected from students, parents, and various community members we’ve met through our live events last fall. Moreover, we respond to questions from participants in real time!
We’ve sliced the hours of recording into bite-sized clips that explore a single question or topic at a time. Find answers to your questions or explore videos to expand your awareness and understanding of how to confront sexual violence and domestic abuse. Click these topics to visit corresponding sections, or scroll down the page to see all available video clips.

RACISM AND SEXUAL VIOLENCE
October was Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) so we pivoted our Ask an Advocate series from interviewing experts to give voice to a DV survivor who feels strongly that her story can help other survivors.
Not overly graphic or triggering, this story of engaging with justice systems is a cautionary tale of managing expectations and how we need our communities – more than anything – to keep each other safe.
