Today Was The Walk For A Change With BARCC

20160410_125228

This morning was the walk for a change,  the 10th annual walk that Boston Area Rape Crisis Center did to raise awareness about sexual assault, and fundraise so they can continue to offer many free services to sexual assault victims.

My sponsor’s and I raised  $500.00!!! This was my first year participating,  and although I didn’t reach my personal goal,  I am beyond thrilled that we raised $ 500.00!

The morning was full of mixed emotions.  I was happy and empowered to be doing something to raise awareness,  help, and try and make a difference; but the sad fact of why I was personally there would not escape my mind.

There was an area that had survivors who made t-shirts depicting their stories on display.  I lost it. It was so sad, but it also made me feel that I am not alone.

I’m happy that I did this,  and I definitely plan to participate in future events!

A List Of Not What You Can Do To Prevent Getting Raped But….

This is great!  Education regarding rape is all about ” things that you can do to prevent yourself from being raped “

This is terrible because it shows that society accepts rape. It enforces “victim blaming ” when the fact of the matter is, getting raped is not a result of something that you did wrong. It is a result of some POS who enjoy talking power away from people.

I  saw this post on Twitter.  It drives home the point that we need to change how we educate people about rape,  and that the issue is with the rapists.
