Safe Horizon is an amazing organization that helps survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. (You can donate here.) Next week, April 13, they're doing an event called SAYSO! (Sexual Assault Yearly Speak Out!).
Through this event, the group hopes to promote healing amongst survivors of sexual assault and also raise community awareness about both assaults and NYC's various rape crisis services.
Since rape is still one of the only crimes where the victim is often stigmatized more than the perpetrator, it's incredibly important to get this information out there. The speakout—which will include healing workshops, spoken word, song, as well as testimonials from survivors, is happening on April 13 from 3:00 to 7:30 at Cadman Plaza outside of Brooklyn Borough Hall.
