We Wear Teal for Awareness
- Every 68 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted (Department of Justice)
- More than 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experience sexual violence (CDC)
- 47% of transgender people experience sexual violence (CDC)
- Women of color disproportionately experience sexual violence (CDC)
Did you know that every county has a sexual violence program? Did you know that there are tons of resources available for victims and survivors from Orders of Protection, and Address Confidentiality Programs to financial assistance, and a legal advocacy?
Many people who have experienced sexual violence either don’t know who to turn to or have had bad experiences when they’ve reached out for help. Your willingness to help can be important to a victim in their safety planning efforts. But while being willing and well-meaning is good, being ready to offer the kind of help that’s needed, while keeping yourself safe, is even better.
Here at The Birth Center we see women from adolescence through menopause and many have experienced intimate partner abuse and/or sexual assault. We listen to clients sharing their stories, we provide resources whenever needed, and connect clients with additional support if necessary. We strive to advocate awareness.
