Description: 

Sexual violence is a huge concern in our communities and in the lives of women and children in the City of Detroit. Survivors of sexual assault often live in silence and in our city. Many of families do not know where to turn for help or even know that help is available. To bring awareness to this issue and the organizations that are dedicated to serving the community the Wayne County Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner's (WC SAFE) Advocacy Program and YWCA/Interim House are planning a Take Back The Night Rally in the City of Detroit. WC SAFE is providing advocacy services to victims of The 400 Project. The 400 Project is a sample of the 12,000 evidence collection kits done on rape victims that were never processed and found in storage units in 2009. WC SAFE is providing advocacy services to these victims, but also to any sexual assault survivor in Wayne County. YWCA/ Interim House is the only domestic violence and sexual assault shelter in the city of Detroit and one of the largest in the State of Michigan.

Take Back The Night started in the United States in the 1970s and focused on the unsafe streets, cities and campuses. Today, events highlight the problem of violence against women as well as the broader issues of sexual violence. All events during the month of April strive to bring awareness to the problem of sexual violence and support those who have been victimized.  Wayne County SAFE and YWCA/Interim House are working to gather the support of our criminal justice systems and other community agencies. Two speakers for the evening will be Lori Robinson, Editor of B.L.A.C. Detroit Magazine and author of “I Will Survive: The African American Guide to Healing from Sexual Assault and Abuse”, and Stacy Y. Barker, a sexual assault survivor and the first women in Michigan to have a mandatory sentence vacated by a federal court. There will be spoken words by Kalimah Johnson a performance poet and activist for women and the LGBT community. The rally will be held on April 6, 2011 at 6:00pm-8:00pm in Cadillac Square.

Description: 

In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, SHARPP cordially invites the University of New Hampshire Community to the 1st Annual Taking a Community Stance: Stepping Out to Speak Out Against Violence. This localized social movement aims at gathering students, faculty, staff and Durham community members together to take a collective and powerful stance against all forms of violence on our campus. This event will include informational tables, a 20 minute walk around campus, reading of UNH’s 1st Community Proclamation Against Violence and a student call to action to end violence against women at UNH.
 
This event is open to the UNH and Durham community. Violence against victims/survivors results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions.

Description: 

The Clean Slate Diaries was created to honor and recognize the path survivors of Sexual Abuse & Domestic Violence have walked. Currently, there are no races taking place in support of survivor recovery or color-coded products sold to recognize the intense courage and fierce determination required to overcome the trauma that remains from these crimes.

Clean Slate Founder and Executive Producer, Renee DeVesty, knew that finding your voice was an essential first step in the healing process.  A survivor of Rape and Domestic Violence, she decided to choreograph an evening of Art, Music, Dance and Spoken Word Stories that would inspire and empower survivors to break through the darkness of guilt and shame and allow their light to shine – their voice to be heard – using Art as a form of expression.

Produced by survivors, for survivors and held annually during April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month in Syracuse, New York, 2013 will bring together five area colleges and universities to raise awareness of the high incidence of sexaul assault and intimate partner violence among the college demographic, along with award-winning musicians, artists and dancers.

This event is a reminder that despite anything that has happened, a new beginning is always available to us – an opportunity to wipe away the stain and begin again.
