We are excited to announce Brooklyn’s first annual SAYSO (Sexual Assault Yearly Speak Out)! Safe Horizon’s Brooklyn Rape and Sexual Assault Program is planning this public event that raises awareness about sexual assault and sexual assault services while celebrating healing and recovery. We have several options available if you would like to participate in this event.

As you may know, Safe Horizon’s Brooklyn Rape and Sexual Assault Program provides time-limited counseling and advocacy to survivors of sexual assault, along with their families and friends. The program also raises awareness of sexual violence through presentations and outreach. This year, we are organizing Brooklyn’s first SAYSO event following successful similar events in Manhattan and Staten Island. For more information about previous SAYSO events, please visit the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault website:
