Walk Against Rape is an opportunity for the communities of San Francisco to come together and raise awareness about sexual assault. The silence surrounding rape in our society keeps survivors isolated and without support. Let's make our voices and stories known, let’s break the silence!Added to the calendar on Friday Apr 6th, 2012 3:15 PM
Walk Against Rape:
• Raises awareness about sexual violence.
• Provides a space for survivors of sexual violence to heal and celebrate their survival.
• Educates communities about the resources available in the aftermath of an assault.
• Raises money for San Francisco's only community based rape crisis center.
• Create a culture that says NO! to sexual violence in our communities.
• Makes visible what has historically been silenced and invisible.
