Your show of support to survivors everywhere ❤️
Believe survivors of sexual abuse and sexual assault. Be open and available to hear their stories. Give them the benefit of the doubt. Acknowledge what happened is not their fault, and that they deserve to heal—it’s never too late.
END RAPE CULTURE
Your protest against rape culture ✊
Rape culture is an environment where words, actions, and inactions normalize, trivialize, and ignore rape and sexual assault. This includes victim-blaming and the downplay of unwanted sexual advances, language, and jokes.
Your symbol of strength and resilience 💪
For survivors to know they deserve to be heard, to be believed, to be given respect & support, to know what happened is not their fault, they deserve to heal
For parents, caregivers, and loved ones to believe in arming kids with the tools and confidence they need to stay safe, and to create a space of support no matter what
For anyone who believes in fighting for a world without sexual abuse, rape, and assault
About the fundraiser
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and Child Abuse Prevention Month. Designed Out Of Love partnered with two small businesses, Human Up and The Colour Polka Dot for this year's aWEARness fundraiser. Each are makers of beautiful and unique hand-made items with a backdrop of social justice and community support.
This year's profits will be donated to Resilience, an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors through non-judgmental crisis intervention counseling, individual and group trauma therapy, and medical and legal advocacy in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Resilience provides public education and institutional advocacy in order to improve the treatment of sexual assault survivors and to effect positive change in policies and public attitudes toward sexual assault.
