Awareness helps promote a community where survivors feel safe and supported, more people feel inspired to address sexual violence, and rape culture is not normalized.
Awareness activities are limitless, but here are some examples of how to engage in awarenss.
Informational Flyers and Resource Cards
1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men experience sexual violence. There are survivors all around us and we can make a huge impact by connecting with healing and support. You can carry our cards to give to a survivor, or you can place our resource materials in your business or workplace.
Safe Place utilizes Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to provide useful information about awareness and healing.
Follow us on social media and share to increase awareness and support.
The Clothesline Project
The Clothesline Project is a powerful display of t-shirts decorated by survivors and loved ones. The shirts act as testimonials to the effects of sexual violence on campus, community, and state. You can request to decorate a shirt, have the Clothesline Project displayed at your business, place of work, event, or campus, or attend one of the Clothesline Project displays.
