BE LOUD Breakfast 2020

 

THANK YOU!

The BE LOUD Breakfast Campaign has officially ended, and we are grateful to report that, with your help, we reached our goal! Our Executive Director, Mary Ellen Stone, has a few words for all who are supporting KCSARC during these challenging times:

 


 

 

A MESSAGE TO OUR COMMUNITY

We are truly disappointed we couldn’t gather in person this year for the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center’s 2020 BE LOUD Breakfast. We made the difficult decision to cancel following public health alerts regarding coronavirus, and first and foremost, want our supporters to be safe and healthy. Part of our decision was based on the strong belief that our supporters will stand with us, and with survivors, from wherever they are. 

It’s difficult to re-create the experience we missed by being together in a room of 1,000 people, all standing up to sexual violence. But here's a little bit of the inspiring program we had lined up.

“I am LOUD for the victims that lay in their beds in their own home, afraid to sleep because their protector is their abuser. I am LOUD for the victims that traumatically suffer the aftermath of the abuse. I will GLADLY be the voice for those who are suffering silently.”

- Ana Molia, KCSARC Speakers Bureau Member
 

“I am LOUD for every mother, every wife, every daughter and every victim in our community.
I am LOUD because, in order to make a lasting difference, we have to protect each other and demand respect and safety.”

- Renton Mayor Armondo Pavone

“I am LOUD for those who are kept silent by fear – of their attacker, of not being believed, of being told it is their fault. I am LOUD to let survivors know they are heard, believed, supported, and loved.” 

- King County Council Chair Claudia Balducci

“I am LOUD because I know first-hand the lifelong impact that sexual assault has on victims and families. I am LOUD because I know that getting help can create a dramatic positive change over those lifetimes. I am LOUD because I know we can all step up and do something about it. Right here. Right now, today.” 

- "Danger", Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA)

“I am LOUD to help survivors seek justice, I am LOUD to help survivors find their voice, and I am LOUD because it is on all of us to stand up for what’s right.” 

- Jason Rittereiser, HKM Employment Attorneys

“I am LOUD because the State of Washington has more than 10,000 women waiting for their rape kits to be processed!” 

- Monica Alexander, Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission

“I am LOUD to cover the silence of those who cannot speak up. I am LOUD to voice the pain of survivors. I am LOUD so survivors can hear that they are not alone. I am LOUD so survivors can be supported and treated with dignity and respect.”

- Pallavi Wahi, K&L Gates

“Yo soy fuerte porque soy sobreviviente y eso me ha hecho más fuerte,Yo soy fuerte porque le doy fuerzas a mis hijos para que ellos sean fuertes y no se queden callados.Yo soy fuerte y hablo fuerte por todos los que no pueden. No más abuso sexual.” ("I am LOUD because I am a survivor and that has made me stronger, I am LOUD because I give strength to my children so they can be loud and not remain silent. I am LOUD for all those who cannot. No more sexual abuse.”) 

- Paola Fernandez, KCSARC Staff

“I’m LOUD for victims who have yet to find the strength to tell their story.”

- Pat St. Laurent, Expeditors

“I am LOUD for my younger self, my daughter, and too many friends who are survivors and had to navigate what can be a lonely journey toward healing and empowerment.”

- Pearl Leung, Vulcan
