Start by Believing Campaign

Start by Believing is a public awareness campaign uniquely focused on the public response to sexual assault.  Because a friend or family member is typically the first person a victim confides in after an assault, each individual’s personal reaction is the first step in a long path toward justice and healing. Knowing how to respond is critical—a negative response can worsen the trauma and foster an environment where perpetrators face zero consequences for their crimes.One failed response means five more assaults. Stop the cycle and make our communities safer.” This is a project of End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), http://www.evawintl.org/
