It Happened to Me

Today I became part of something amazing and I wanted to let you know. It’s called NO MORE, and we’re using a powerful new symbol to unleash national attention on an issue that impacts 12.7 million of us every year. 

That’s 24 people every minute.

Many people think that domestic violence and sexual assault don’t affect them, but they’re wrong.  These are people that we know. They’re our mothers, girlfriends, brothers, sisters, children, co-workers and friends. These issues are massive but they’re still very hidden and misunderstood. 

It’s time to change that.

I am a survivor of sexual assault.  And it has happened to me more than once in my lifetime.  I am breaking the silence and want to encourage you to do the same.  Together we can bring an end to this far too common crime committed against humanity.
I’m saying NO MORE to domestic violence and sexual assault by using this symbol and sharing it with everyone I know. I hope you will too.

Together we can end domestic violence and sexual assault. 

You can find out more information at www.nomore.org.

Thanks for taking a look!
