A woman is abused every 2 minutes somewhere in this world

 

  Social media has become a tool through which movements such as #Metoo & #nomeansno have given individuals a platform to vocalize their personal sexual assault experiences. As we read through stories and browsed through comments, we realized that many people do not fully understand what sexual assault is and what it entails. The lack of knowledge about this matter has led to victims being blamed and shamed.

 

       We are here to eradicate that stigma.

  

    To anyone who is or has been a victim of sexual assault, whether those around you believe you or not, we want you to know that:

WE SEE YOU, WE HEAR YOU, WE BELIEVE YOU.

 

“Every number has a name. Every name has a story. Every story matters to God.”
