1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men were sexually abused before the age of 18. These people are our neighbors, our family members and our friends. As a community, it is our responsibility to advocate against sexual assault and domestic violence.
March 3rd – 9th is NO MORE week and we have a chance to engage people from around the United States on the importance of ending domestic violence and sexual assault. How will you say NO MORE?
Washington Says No More is a statewide movement aimed at ending sexual assault and domestic violence by saying “NO MORE” and advocating for education, and resources to help those who have been affected by sexual assault and domestic violence.
