BE LOUD Table Captains Raise Funds and Awareness

The 2019 BE LOUD Breakfast is a few weeks away, but some of the participating teams have already begun reaching out to friends, family, and colleagues to help make their contribution to the Breakfast the strongest it can be.

One of these teams, led by three-time table captain Rebecca Drew, is proving fundraising for a cause they believe in can be fun -- and can really make an impact.

Rebecca said she signed up to lead a table at the BE LOUD Breakfast so that others can receive services that she herself was able to access following a sexual assault years ago.

Our Take on Title IX Changes

Title IX was established in 1972 to prevent gender discrimination in educational institutions that receive federal funding.

Supreme Court decisions and guidance from the U.S. Department of Education have given Title IX  broad scope covering sexual harassment and sexual violence.  Under Title IX, schools are legally required to respond and remedy hostile educational environments. When a school fails to do so, it is a violation that risks federal funding.

More holiday strategies

“I still don’t know why someone would wait so many years to report a sexual assault.”

“I’d have given him a knuckle sandwich. Hey, pass the cranberry sauce?”

Welcome to the second post-MeToo holidays.

The next few weeks can be a rough time of year for many. For survivors of sexual assault and abuse, family visits can be particularly stressful, and maybe even unsafe.

Tiempo de Volar

(English)

Recuperarse del trauma del abuso sexual infantil es difícil en cualquier circunstancia, no importan quiénes, o de dónde seamos, pero puede parecer imposible para muchas mujeres inmigrantes.

Las barreras idiomáticas, el complicado sistema de justicia y el temor a que pedir ayuda pueda poner en peligro su seguridad y la de su familia son sólo algunas de las razones que hacen que muchas sobrevivientes de abuso sexual carguen solas con el peso de su historia.

Tiempo de Volar Helps Heal

(Espanol)

Healing from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse is difficult regardless of who you are or where you’re from. But it can feel impossible to many migrant survivors. Language barriers, complicated systems of criminal justice, and the belief that asking for help could very well jeopardize your personal or family safety are a few reasons many migrant survivors simply carry their trauma burden alone.
