Join Us To Make Signs: Starbucks, Columbus @ 67th 4pm, Sat, Oct 10
What: On Saturday, October 10,
Why: According to the US Department of Justice, every two minutes someone in the US is sexually assaulted. Sexual assault is one of the most under reported crimes, with 60% still being left unreported. The outcry of support for a sexual assault perpetrator is a strong message we are sending out to victims across the country that they will be forever silenced and blamed for these atrocious acts.
Who: This collaborative effort with organizations such as NOW (National Organization for Women) is being orchestrated by the nonprofit PAVE: Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment, who was responsible for the 2007 nationwide “Call it RAPE Protest” that was held in over 40 cities and covered on CNN, TIME, and NBC’s Today Show. PAVE uses education and action to shatter the silence of sexual violence with targeted social, educational and legislative tactics. PAVE initiatives have been implemented in over 55 cities and in 3 countries. http://www.PavingTheWay.net
