When tragedy strikes, friends and loved ones gather for support. It should be the same with sexual violence. But all too often, survivors who have the courage to tell someone what happened are blamed instead of comforted. This needs to change.

The PSA shares firsthand the impact of sexual violence, as told through the courageous words of 3 survivors.
