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?

Sobering stuff. If you happen to know anyone suffering abuse this link details where survivors of sexual violence can receive support in their area.
