Sexual Violence Affects Us All

by @maya.siegel

Sexual violence impacts billions of young people worldwide along with their families, friends, and communities. And yet, the trivialization of sexual violence threatens to diminish and silence the voices of young survivors. Together, we can work to rectify this injustice by re-opening the conversation and showing that we care. #WhyICare Side note: Space to Speak (the organization that I founded) is a youth run organization that is dedicated to giving youth a leading voice in the sexual violence prevention (SVP) movement while also changing the stigma of sexual violence at a legislative and cultural level. To do this, we focus specifically on the effect sexual violence has on young people and strive to raise awareness of the overarching issues through consent education and by encouraging conversation between young people.
