Today marks the beginning of Sexual Violence Awareness Week.
We would like to recognize the necessity to be able to support anyone who has experienced any form of sexual violence in their personal or professional life regardless of when it happened. We need to take good care of ourselves, but we can also support each other. It may be hard but if you are looking for support after experiencing sexual violence you can reach out to:
