You are not alone

If you have been sexually assaulted it is important to know and understand that you are not alone and that it is not your fault. There is no behavior, manner of dress, or situation that justifies sexualized violence. If you are a victim/survivor of sexualized violence, you have done nothing wrong and you are not to blame.
