7 Ways P**n Fuels Trafficking — Treasures Website

"this blog is NOT to shame anyone, but to shed light on an issue that is affecting so many. Some people still think that p**n is victimless. Others even go so far as to argue that it is empowering to women. I want people to know the truth. I want people to be moved, not to shame, but to compassion and to action. I realize that some of this information might be shocking. My intention is not to shock, but to awaken. We can’t fix what we do not face."

Sexual Assault Center Partner Interview

We teach children that they are the boss of their bodies.
Click here to meet one of our advocates talking first hand about the importance of prevention! --> https://fb.watch/6JH3I74uZr/

Join us in our efforts by prioritizing safety rules in your home:
1) Calling body parts by their real names.
2) Saying No or Stop to anyone who makes their bodies feel uncomfortable and telling a trusted adult about it.
3) Teaching children that private parts are covered by bathing suits and we will not keep secrets about these areas of our body.

Contact us anytime to schedule group or individualized services!

Sexploitation of women in sport

"Various terms have been used to describe the s*xualizing of athletes, of which the most common is s*xploitation. Sexploitation is used in this context to describe forms of marketing, promotion or attempts to gain media coverage which focus attention on the s*xual attributes of female athletes, especially the visibility of their bodies."

https://www.collectiveshout.org/s*xploitation_of_women_in_sport

The female body is used to sell many products in our society, from cars to washing powder. In certain forms of promotion through sport, the female athlete is also being treated as a commodity - in this case, an overtly s*xualised one.

Thank you Simone for showing survivors everywhere that its okay to step back and set boundaries to prioritize your mental health.

Today, Simone Biles announced she is withdrawing from the women’s team gymnastics final at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, as she attempts to protect “her body and mind.”
Biles has been a huge advocate for survivors of s*xual violence since coming forward about the abuse she suffered at the hands of Larry Nassar. Biles is the only gymnast competing in the 2020 Olympics who has publicly come forward as a survivor.
Sexual violence can have a lifetime effect on a survivor, and returning to a high stress environment that is tied to abuse can increase traumatic responses in the body.
We applaud Simone for prioritizing her mental health above all else. We stand with her and support her. We believe you.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! 💙💚 Our Willow Tree Cornerstone Child Advocacy Center is running out of new pillowcases to give to children who come in for a medical evaluation after being abused, neglected or otherwise maltreated.

A pillowcase isn't just a pillowcase at Willow Tree. It's a touch of home that can help a child feel safe and comforted during their exam and when they take it home. Last year, a record 288 medical evaluations were conducted at Willow Tree and we're on the same pace again this year.

Ethan's Story | RAINN

“Part of what helped me figure out and embrace my trans masculinity was my r**e crisis training...For the first time in my life I felt like everything he described really applied to me. I realized that I hadn’t had a weird or wrong reaction—the way I emotionally handled and processed my experience of s*xual assault just fit much more with common male reactions.”

Ethan Levine was s*xually assaulted in high school by a friend of someone he was casually dating. “In the immediate aftermath of the first assault, my focus was on whether it was real and whether I was right about what had happened. I got hung up on the fact that what happened to me didn’t fit t...

General information

Sexual Assault is defined as any sexual contact or in*******se without consent. It is an act of power and control. Sexual assault can include date or acquaintance r**e, sexual abuse, marital or domestic partner sexual assault, in**st, 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 S*X TRAFFICKING: Due to the high response to my public-service educational lecture, I am giving it again, since to fight this scourge of our society we must first understand its components and dynamics. Please join me for 45 minute on Wednesday, October 14, at 8 PM ET One-third of humans trafficked for s*x in the USA arrive across borders, while an 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 s*xual slavery in our own backyard.
