Do you know someone who says "I Was"? Support them during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Every two minutes in the United States, someone's life changes for good. Every two minutes in the United States, someone is sexually assaulted.

They're your sisters, your mothers, your brothers and fathers, your friends. Many victims never come forward and never get help for the most personal violation someone can experience. But survivors aren't alone.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a time to shine a light on the devastating crime of rape and a time to remind survivors they're not alone. The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network put out this powerful PSA to remind survivors of just that. 

During Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we can tell everyone who says "I Was" that there is support and help for them.
