“One Thing”

“One Thing”

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and this year, Connecticut Sexual Assault Crisis Services and the Victim/Survivor Advisory Council are making it easy to take a critical first step to end sexual violence.

The “One Thing” project is an opportunity for survivors to confront the silence that typically surrounds sexual violence and allows pernicious myths to take root. In this short video, survivors share the one thing that they would tell the world if the world were willing to listen.

Are you willing to listen?

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
