Last episode, the beginning of the 2nd Annual Sexual Violence Awareness Avocation began, and I discussed the Instagram challenge I’m participating in hosted by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. Now I’m not the most creative person in the world, but I am having a great time putting posts together and engaging with other participants – finding out more about them and how they serve their population. If you would like to participate in the remainder of the challenge for a chance to win a $25 Etsy gift card, locate the National Sexual Violence Resource Center on Instagram. Their handle is @nsvrc. You can also find the challenge listed on their website at www.nsvrc.org.
I am not currently sponsored by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, but I wanted to share some of the activities they are hosting. Not only are they hosting an Instagram challenge, there are so many free online events with wonderful resources to inform you about the different populations affected by sexual assault and sexual violence, and how they are affected. I know from personal experience, showing up to these events support you in knowing how to reach out if you are in need of support or how to best support someone else victimized or have survived it. I will also provide the links for near the end of the blog post.
This episode will about the victims experience with sexual violence and sexual assault.
Leave a comment after listening to today’s episode or by the voice message feature on the podcast. I would love to hear from you.
