Sometimes confidants to whom a survivor discloses can ask seemingly innocent questions that can trigger self-doubt and prevent victims from reporting to police. They may also question what they did wrong and believe it was their fault.

What can you do to support a victim: remain calm, believe them, listen, assure support, and avoid judgmental language.

24 Books About Consent and Bodily Autonomy For Toddlers and Kids

Sometimes it can be hard to find a way to bring up topics like “consent” and “body autonomy” with your kids. This article can help you find a book that gets that conversation started.

Teaching consent and bodily autonomy can be tough for some — let these children's books help you to explain those important concepts to your kids.

Oppression is a root cause of sexual violence. Inequality and sexual violence are linked, and perpetrators may target people with less perceived power. Some factors may include:
• Age
• Disability
• Gender identity
• Immigration status
• Income
• Political identity
• Race or ethnicity
• Religious or spiritual
beliefs
• Sexual orientation

Inequalities can result in less access to information and resources, which makes it harder to get help. Please share to help spread awareness for sexual assault survivors.

The Survivors Agenda is an amazing organization to continue learning and find new resources. Go to survivorsagenda.org for more information.

Many of us are survivors, too; so we know that empowering others through empathy is a part of our own healing journeys.

The Sexual Assault Center is looking for volunteer advocates!

We provide 24/7 crisis response to survivors of sexual assault and their family and friends. We rely on volunteer advocates to assist in 24 hour coverage outside of business hours. Volunteers are able to set their own schedule and are only required to cover three shifts each month.

Volunteers learn about the dynamics of abuse, the impact of trauma and the community’s response to sexual assault. Our volunteers help victims feel supported and believed during what is often a confusing and traumatic time in the person’s life.

For more information, contact Samantha Bouressa at [email protected] or (920) 436-4360 ext. 1287.

We cannot remain silent. Please take a moment to read this important message from our organization.

Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin

We cannot remain silent. Please take a moment to read this important message from our organization.

As an agency with a mission to Protect, Heal and Care for vulnerable members of our community, Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin cannot remain silent concerning the disturbing events of this past week.

With the senseless murder of George Floyd, old and festering wounds have been exposed, not just nationally, but here in Northeast Wisconsin as well. Guilty parties must be held accountable and we must move toward helping everyone in our community to understand why people of color continue to live in fear in this country.

Our responsibility is to listen and understand the needs of others more thoroughly. As a community and as individuals, we cannot turn a blind eye to the racism and inequality that has been with us since the founding of our nation. We must understand the systemic issues which contribute to people of color being over represented in our jails and prisons. We must understand the anger and fear that resurfaces every time we see instances of brutality and excessive force by those in authority.

Racism and inequality is our collective problem and not just a problem in Minneapolis or somewhere else. Rather than placing blame on one another, we must be willing to come together as individuals and as allies to solve these problems that continue to haunt us. As we have continually said during the COVID-19 crisis, we are in this together. These words are never truer or more necessary.

Paraphrasing a common expression from the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, we are called to action with these words – If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. We must commit and we must commit now to be part of destroying racism and inequality in our communities.

Tomorrow is #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day of giving and solidarity created in response to the need caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. At RAINN, we are already starting to get a sense of how great that need will be.

On #GivingTuesdayNow, we hope that you will help us rally around a group of people who have been particularly hard hit by this pandemic: survivors who are currently trapped at home with an abuser.

To help make sure that RAINN is ready to support these survivors—especially the record number of minors who have contacted our National Sexual Assault Hotline in the past month—The Human Investment Foundation is offering a generous two-to-one match on any tax-deductible gift, up to $50,000, to help launch a special fund in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Once shelter-in-place orders begin to lift, our hotline support specialists anticipate that countless more survivors will reach out as they start to find safety and healing—and we urgently need your support to make sure we are ready. Any gift you make in the next 36 hours will triple the impact you can have to support survivors on their journey of healing.

Please, give if you can. The crucial services RAINN provides take on new meaning in this unprecedented moment—but with your help I know we can make sure survivors have somewhere to turn as we emerge from this crisis.

Yes. RAINN is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. In other words, we are a non-profit organization, and your donation to RAINN is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Our tax ID number is: 52-1886511.

IMPORTANT HEALTH UPDATE (COVID-19):

All of Family Services Crisis and Sexual Assault services remain OPEN and available to those in need 24/7. If access to any of these programs change, we will keep you informed.

We ask that if you have symptoms or are running a fever, that you contact us to cancel and reschedule your appointment. We are requiring the same precautions of all staff. For outpatient counseling appointments, it is our plan to minimize your time in the waiting area. Please do not bring family members that are not part of the treatment services.

We are actively exploring the option of providing telehealth services during this challenging time. This is a complex issue and we are working with our state leaders to loosen the guidelines allowing us to safely and effectively offer this treatment option.

We understand that information is changing rapidly. If you have any questions or need to call and cancel or reschedule an appointment, please contact us at (920)436-6800 in Green Bay and (920)739-4226 in Menasha.

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.

(Please share) UNDERSTANDING SEX TRAFFICKING: To fight this scourge of our society we must first understand its components and dynamics. I'll do that in my 45 minute lecture on Thursday, July 9 at 6 PM ET One-third of humans trafficked for sex in the USA arrive across borders, while estimated two-thirds are recruited in our neighborhoods. Learn about the role of airlines, schools, businesses, hotels, sports arenas, prisons and banks in abetting or fighting it—and the initiatives taken by those wishing to abolish it vs. those who want to fixate slavery in the law. In this comprehensive speech, I will explain the mechanics of supply and demand and will present a new paradigm of thinking for the audience to help battle—and defeat—the misery of sexual slavery in our own backyard. Please register NOW for this webinar: When: Jul 9, 2020 06:00 PM (ET) https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Zv21-02WQhm3PbqsD-DUKA Why am I doing this? When researching writing my novel THE THIRD DAUGHTER I realized that the methods traffickers use to lure their victims haven't changed in 120 years. But if we shift our thinking paradigm about it, we can help not only today's victims but also reduce the demand for tomorrow's victims. #sextrafficking, #sexualslavery, #prostitution, #humantrafficking, #historicalfiction
