Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month 2018

April 2018
Berkshire County

Your voice has power! Shatter the silence!

In 2017, Elizabeth Freeman Center provided help and support to 328 survivors of sexual assault, including responding 35 times to local hospitals and police stations to support someone immediately after a sexual assault had occurred.

Join us as we stand up as a community to speak out against sexual violence, rape culture, shame, and victim blaming.  Sexual assault is about power & control, not gender. Everyone is encouraged to come:
