Description

JOIN US!!! 12th Annual WALK AGAINST RAPE on SATURDAY APRIL 8, 2017 held every year in San Francisco’s Mission District starting at the Women’s Building. This event brings together thousands of Bay Area residents to Walk, Raise funds and Awareness around ending sexual violence in our communities.

Currently, the federal Violence Against Women's Act is being threatend. The elimination or cuts to these programs means that every single Rape Crisis Center in every county of the United States will have their funding on direct services to survivors of sexual assault cut to the point of having to decrease these services. Prevention education in the schools, community agencies, and trainings on how to prevent sexual assault, how to support a survivor and how to interrupt violence will also be dramatically cut to the point where we will not be able to have capacity to service our communities. We would like to connect the importance of the WALK Against Rape with these alarming cuts and the need for communities to become active and vocal in keeping these vital services alive. It is not enough to know that:

1 out of 3 women are sexually assaulted before the age of 18

1 out of 6 boys are sexually assaulted before the age of 18

Also,

1 in 3 women over the age of 18 are sexually assaulted in their lifetime, and

1 in 11 men over the age 18 are sexually assaulted in their lifetime

The world-wide statistic is staggering:

1 in 3 women worldwide will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime
