"I was raped...but I am proud. I am proud of the person I am. I am proud that I survived such torment. I am proud that I did it without the mindless hate of the rapist. I am proud that out of the trauma I created a new beginning, a better Me. I am proud of me!"

Any amount you give goes directly towards ending sexual assault and supporting survivors. Currently, California spends only $45,000 on approximately 35,000 new survivors each year. That is less that $1.50 per survivor. If every survivor came forward to seek services, we would have to turn some away.
