Support survivors of sexual assault. By holding sharing sessions in a safe and anonymous space, survivors can come together to share their stories or simply listen to others. Sharing sessions will aim to become a community of support for survivors to connect with each other. There is healing in telling. There is healing in being believed. There is healing in knowing you are not alone.
Teach youth through educational videos that teach everyone the importance of consent. S.T.A.N.D. will also have survivors speak of how they overcame their experiences, making it easier for others to feel comfortable in seeking help. S.T.A.N.D. is run by survivors for survivors.
Advocate for change by raising awareness within the community. We will be passionately advocating to end victim shaming and change the stigma around sexual violence.
Why S.T.A.N.D. Was Founded
Erin Brassard founded S.T.A.N.D. in 2018. After coming to terms with her own traumatic experiences, she realized she had to take a stand.
