#StartByBelieving

TAKE THE PLEDGE

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#SAAM). The purpose behind #SAAM is to spread awareness of the prevalence of sexual assault and the impact that it has on victims and survivors. As community members, we all have a choice to advocate for victims in our daily lives. Whether it is through volunteering, sharing social media posts about the issue, or holding those accountable around you when they perpetuate the cycle of violence, you have the power to be a part of the solution and stand up for victims.

In honor of #SAAM, take the pledge to #StartByBelieving! As an advocate in the community, you pledge to:

  • Start by believing when someone tells you they were raped or sexually assaulted
  • Support survivors on the road to justice and healing
  • Help end the silence.

2 in 5 women in Texas will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. With the rise of the #MeToo movement we have an opportunity to be a part of a grassroots change to support and believe victims of sexual assault. Take the pledge and be a part of the solution this #SAAM!
