Event description
SURVIVORS’ STORIES: STAND AGAINST SEXUAL VIOLENCE

About this Event

February 28th | 7pm | $15 suggested donation

FEBRUARY 28, 2019, with support from Fine Dining Productions and Johnson County Mental Health Center, The Rino will be hosting a very special event called Survivors’ Stories: Stand Against Sexual Violence. All proceeds will go to MOCSA, The Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault.

The evening will be curated by local musician, Una Walkenhorst, and will consist of a lineup of performers sharing songs, poetry, and other performance art pieces that touch on their experience with sexual violence or harassment. Along with providing a safe space where survivors can connect and access services they may need, this is a chance for those who have not dealt with sexual violence to further understand what it means to be a survivor.

MORE ON MOCSA:

MOCSA, The Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault, exists to improve the lives of those impacted by sexual assault and abuse and to prevent sexual violence in our community.

Sexual violence is not something that only happens in other places – it happens right here, in Kansas City, every single day. And the impacts can be devastating, not only for the victims, but also for their friends and loved ones. Too often, it happens within a family or within a circle of friends. More than 80 percent of sexual violence is committed by someone the victim knows, not by a stranger.

Without support and help, the trauma of sexual violence can stay with victims for a lifetime. So we do everything we can to prevent these crimes from happening in the first place, and to offer support, healing, and hope when they do occur. We help victims become survivors.
