🍳 Your partner's unpredictable anger has you walking on eggshells.
😠 Your partner pressures you to get what they want.
πŸ‘Š Your partner hits you, pushes you, or destroys your things.
😒 Your partner humiliates you or calls you names.
πŸ’­ Your partner controls you or constantly checks up on you.

The event raised $20,000 to Protect, Heal, and Care for survivors of sexual abuse through the Sexual Assault Center and Willow Tree Cornerstone Child Advocacy Center, both programs of Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin. That was their goal, and we are so thankful to everyone who helped reach it!!

Our special thanks also go out to Justen Ragen of OGLEMC and his wife. They generously donated this hand-carved wooden rocking motorcycle to Willow Tree, where it will be added to our play area to help comfort the abused children who we help there.

There is still a tremendous lack of attention paid to teens that represent both the population that is most vulnerable to sexual violence and our greatest hope for transforming the culture that begets that violence.

General information

Sexual Assault is defined as any sexual contact or intercourse without consent. It is an act of power and control. Sexual assault can include date or acquaintance rape, sexual abuse, marital or domestic partner sexual assault, incest, sexual assault by a stranger and sexual harassment. Most victims know the person who assaulted them. Sexual assault is NOT caused by what the victim is wearing, where they happen to be, or what they happen to be doing. It is ALWAYS the responsibility of the offender.
