Regardless of where you fall on our political spectrum or what you support, we can all agree that the confirmation process of Justice Brett Kavanaugh received wide-spread attention. This may be due to the fact that this year is a year of cultural awakening in the movement to end sexual violence. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s decision to come forward with her deeply personal experience before a national audience has inspired survivors across the nation to share their own stories, speak out against sexual violence, and seek solidarity with one another.
Each one of us has the potential to help create a community of belief and acceptance, and this begins with trusting and supporting survivors. WTLC stands with every survivor, whether or not they choose to disclose their stories. We look forward to, and continue to work toward, a future where every survivor is met with compassion as we strive to end sexual and domestic violence.
