Sexual violence is any sexual activity when consent is not obtained or not freely and soberly given.
Sexual violence causes serious health and psycho-emotional consequences.
Advocates regards sexual violence as a public safety issue that impacts every community and affects people of all genders, sexual orientations, backgrounds, and ages.
Sexual violence is entirely preventable when an informed community adopts a zero-tolerance attitude towards all problem beahviors (sexism, catcalling. harassment, stalking, bigotry, groping, assault, abuse, etc)
Advocates reject all victim-blaming narratives:
(they were asking for it, what were they wearing? why were they walking alone? etc.)
To every survivor:
IT WASN’T YOUR FAULT. WE BELIEVE YOU. AND WE’RE HERE FOR YOU.
