Break the Cycle
Make the pledge:
yourself against sexual assault, and ask others to do so as well.
Be an ally:
Listen to survivors, and support them in their recovery. Do not belittle, blame, de-escalate, or invalidate their experience.
Know your rights:
Know your legal rights and challenge the system - namely rape culture- which benefits off of your ignorance.
Hold yourself accountable:
Understand how your actions, language, and beliefs normalize violence, then change them.
Create a safe space:
Destigmatize the discussion of sexual violence in order to raise awareness about it and support a victim's ability to speak about their experience without shame, blame, or other cultural backlash.
Don't be a bystander:
if you see an assault occuring and call out friends or family members when they or normalizing or trivializing sexual violence.
Value and express yourself, and know how to ask for what you want and need. As a result, you will challenge the system which seeks to silence you and your expression with self-doubt and objectification.
