The work of Pittsburgh Action Against Rape has never been more important. More than ever before, we are dedicated to changing our culture so that all survivors are believed, supported and able to seek the justice they so deserve whenever they are ready no matter how long ago they were victimized.
It’s been both an exciting and a trying year for many survivors, advocates, and others active in the movement to end sexual violence. Sexual violence is in the forefront of our everyday news and social media and while that can be daunting to many it has opened doors and conversations in our communities. More people are reaching out for support, people are talking about sexual violence prevention and people are taking action and investing in change.
With your commitment and help we can create more pathways for the most vulnerable folks to come forward. Help us take on preventing sexual violence as a community responsibility.
Together, we can create communities that believe victims and provide help, hope, and healing to all survivors.
