What Were you Wearing?

Posted by:

The next time you are tempted to ask what someone was wearing when they were raped, instead ask whether or not consent was given.

To assist in the visualization of this message, Hands of Hope has partnered with 11 different organizations for this critical campaign.

Nationally, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and locally, Hands of Hope wants people to realize the importance of consent in relationships.

It is also important to remember that sexual assault is about power and control, a failure to seek and wait for consent. Rape has nothing to do with what someone was wearing when they were assaulted.

Hands of Hope staff are available to assist or answer questions by calling our 24 hour number at 765-664-0701.
