The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) strives to address sexual violence in all its forms.  SACE’s public education team is committed to encouraging community members to discuss cultural representations in sexual violence in media, including newspapers, television shows, films and other forms of popular culture.  Usually, we do this through community information sessions on sexual violence.

At SACE, we are constantly discussing  news stories; the link between sexual assault and various forms of oppression; the perpetuation of a “rape culture” through popular culture; etc. We recently decided it would be a wonderful idea to bring these discussions to the public realm through a blog in which community members can participate in our discussions.

Thanks for visiting and please feel free to comment!

    I am an adult survivor, and have created a website to share my journey through poetry; as part of my own healing process, and for others to know “you’re not alone” and “people genuinely care and want to help.” I know how difficult it is to reach out for help from others, at any stage in the process, and feel grateful at this point in my journey for SACE.

    God Bless

        Thanks for writing back. I see that my post has been deleted on your space. If I can have an email address so that I can share my story I’d appreciated it. I live in a suppressed part of the world and am rather concerned.
