Every Little Bit Helps.
Through the generosity of people like you, ICESA is able to be a strong voice for survivors whose voices have often been silenced by shame and fear. Donations raised go toward building a robust and relevant coalition with a focus on ending sexual assault. There are many intricate layers to this systemic problem that must be addressed in order to achieve this goal. With your support we will be able to address these layers and ultimately achieve this goal. Your donations will be used to not only train law enforcement personnel, medical professionals, community leaders, sexual assault advocates, social workers, schools (students, teachers, administration), college campuses, but to also, assist and provide resources (including programs and trainings) to Sexual Assault Response Teams, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANEs), create and sustain Rape Crisis Centers and other sexual assault services where services have not existed for many years, etc.
Your funds support an organization dedicated to empowering victims and the work described above will do just that. How? Each dollar helps to address the intricate layers of this systemic problem. As we are able to address a layer, and then another layer, and so on, change is inevitable. A new normal will derive out of the old and a culture of care will be created. Within this culture of care, survivors will be empowered to have a voice no longer silenced by shame and fear, victims will be believed, blame will rightfully shift from the victim to the perpetrator, risk factors will be addressed etc., which will lead to the culmination of a world devoid of sexual violence. WOW. What a world that would be! Impossible?
It always seems impossible until it’s done. – Nelson Mandela
Let’s get it done. Thank you for your support!
