Across the nation, April 3 is recognized as a day of awareness, a day to pledge support to “Start By Believing” survivors of sexual assault. Join VCU Police and the Richmond City Sexual Assault Response Team in Monroe Park to sign your pledge to support survivors. While you are there, take aim at our “disbelief balloons” and eliminate victim-blaming statements survivors often report experiencing when they disclose their assault. Visit tables set up by our partners in the Richmond area whose missions surround supporting sexual assault survivors as they navigate the road towards healing in life after trauma.
To help aid our partners in their dedication to sexual assault survivors, we are asking for the following donations. This list is flexible and other items of these types may be accepted:
Liquid Body Wash
Shampoo and Conditioner
Feminine Hygiene Products
*Please note that per health guidelines, our partners are only able to accept new items in unopened packaging*
