We have an entrepreneurial approach that embraces possibility-making, and out-of-the-box thinking. At KCSARC, we are determined to find better solutions because we're passionate about supporting survivors and ending sexual violence. Sexual Assault is not a "silo issue." It also touches domestic violence, bullying, homelessness, victim-blaming, and more. KCSARC dares to bring these adjacent issues together, and to bring a variety of voices to our effort to BE LOUD about sexual assault.
What is BE LOUD About?
BE LOUD is designed to emphasize the positive things KCSARC is doing to re-build lives and re-kindle hope and joy.
BE LOUD is about forward movement. This is not about looking back, it’s about looking forward.
It is critical that no one misinterprets what we are doing with BE LOUD. We will never forget the one thing that draws everyone to KCSARC in the first place. However, KCSARC needs to be defined more by the positive impact it has on the agency’s clients and the broader community.
BE LOUD is:
Challenging violence to create safer environments for everyone
Envisioning an optimistic future
Building fulfilling lives where the victim is not defined by their sexual assault
Celebrating the present and instilling hope for tomorrow
Engaging others to end the silence
It is the rare organization that is both proactive through education and community outreach, and reactive by providing unparalleled support to victims of sexual assault and their families.
