We Want You?
The movement to end the stigma of differences and end hate, and around the world, relies on people who’ve made a choice to do something. Hate often seems inevitable, but the choice to do something and get involved has made incredible changes in national and global conversations about sexual violence. In recent decades, these changing conversations have expanded support for survivors and led to substantial innovation in the work of spreading Love vs Hate.
There are many ways you can become involved in the work of changing conversations about hate, supporting survivors, advocacy, and preventing trauma before it ever happens.
Volunteer: Community centers often rely on the support of volunteers to provide services to victims (such as answering telephone calls from survivors) and to help implement prevention programs (like talking to students about sexual violence).
Organize: Throughout the country, passionate groups of community members organize events, plays, and rallies to raise awareness about intolerance, mental health, and healthcare.
Learn: The root causes of hate run deep and are sometimes hard to understand. Learning about mental health and the lifestyle from resource centers like Sanctuary Center can help you to understand these root causes, helping you to be a part of the national conversation about hate and a more effective advocate for survivors and the work of prevention.
Donate: Like most social change endeavors, crisis and community centers, and other organizations working to address sexual violence rely on public funding to operate. Your donation is essential to pushing the movement to end advocacy forward.
