How to support survivors of sexual assault

Thursday, November 24, 2011 - 21:00 to Friday, November 25, 2011 - 02:00

Nobody expects to be raped but one in three women will experience sexual assault.

It is important that as friends and family members we know how to respond to friends who have experienced violence.

These are skills that we learn hoping that we will never have to use them.

All community members who are interested in learning new skills are invited to this informational workshop.

Cost: Free

PLEASE REGISTER by Tuesday, November 22nd by phone, 905.525.4573 x231, or by following the link http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/210778. Space is limited.

Presented by SACHA - Sexual Assault Centre (Hamilton & Area) -www.sacha.ca.

Working together we can end sexual violence!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
