Servus Credit Union Title Sponsor for We Believe: A benefit for SACE

Posted in News Release, SACE Announcements, SACE Events, Sexual Assault, Uncategorized, We can all do something tagged , , , at 7:19 pm by sacetalks

We would like to thank Servus Credit Union for once again being the Title Sponsor for our annual Valentine’s themed fundraising and awareness event, now called “We Believe: A benefit for SACE”.

Thank you Servus Credit Union, for partnering with us to help shift the climate of silence and shame that surrounds the issue of sexual abuse and assault to one of hope, healing and support. By demonstrating your commitment to standing up against this crime which affects so many, and to honouring the strength and resiliency of survivors, you are showing the Edmonton community your willingness to get in front of an issue that has for too long been shrouded in secrecy, blame, and guilt.

The following is a list of news articles and editorials on sexual assault in communities across the globe (over the past 7 days).  Many of the articles below may contain victim-blaming language, distortion of information which supports sexual assault myths, and/or triggering content.  What these articles do showcase is the prevalence of sexual assault (given that only a small percentage of the 1 in 10 sexual assaults in Canada which are reported receive media attention, several articles on sexual assault within one week indicate a huge number of assaults), what kinds of sexual assaults are reported and how rampant sexual assault myths are.  Please be aware that SACE does not support the content or delivery of any of the following news pieces.
