Supporting A Survivor Of Sexual Assault
If you are a person who is alive and walking around in the world, you know a survivor of sexual assault. The extent to which women, men, and transgender people (people who don’t fit neatly into a male/ female gender binary) are sexually assaulted is unknown because of the elements of cultural silence, disbelief, and fear of more violence that surrounds rape... you know survivors. They are not statistics, they are people that you care about and love.
