I am part of the SOLUTION
Of late, we have all seen an intense media focus on the ongoing sexual violence in our society. Women and men have come bravely forward to publicly share their stories of the terrible abuses and injustice they have been subjected to by trusted family members, employers, co-workers, classmates, acquaintances, coaches, priests, strangers, and others. Often these heartbreaking stories do not reach the light of day until years afterwards. These revelations makes believing and supporting survivors more critical than ever.
Every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted, and every 11 minutes that person is a child. Sexual violence affects nearly every family in America. Sexual assault is still the most underreported crime in America. It is time that we let victims know that we believe them and that we support them.
As the season of giving begins, we hope we can count on your support by considering a gift to Community Violence Solutions. #Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year on November 27th. Fueled by the power of social media and donor collaboration and following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #Giving Tuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. Become part of the solution by donating to services for victims of sexual assault & human trafficking. With your donation, we will be able to provide critical services such as Crisis Intervention, Counseling, Therapy and Accompaniment for survivors.
One of the great things about donating online on #Giving Tuesday is that all processing fees are waived, which means that 100% of your donation goes to Community Violence Solutions! Every little bit counts, so please be sure to mark your calendars and give generously on November 27, 2018! #GIVINGTUESDAY
