Celebrating Our Allies

This month we’re taking time to celebrate our allies who have fought tirelessly side-by-side us, working to end sexual violence in their communities. Thank you to Marc Pelka, Melinda Johnson and Lindsey Jones for joining us, and for taking the time to speak on behalf of survivors and the great organizations they each represent. Thank you to Office of Governor Ned Lamont for recognizing the need to continue concentrated efforts in responding to sexual violence. We are eternally grateful for your dedication.

What Is Sexual Violence?

This month, we’re calling out various forms of sexual violence and drawing attention to how it seeps into our everyday lives. Whether it’s sexual violence we see in media, in the workplace or at home, its pervasive nature builds an oppressive culture that damages and stigmatizes.

All survivors of sexual violence – of any and all forms – are valid. We see you and stand with you.
