PAVE's efforts boldly aspire to one day transform our nation into one free from sexual assault -- and to ensure that until we collectively realize this transformative vision, that no victim ever feels alone or disempowered.
I pledge to join the collective and collaborative movement to end sexual violence, domestic violence, harassment, assault and rape.
I pledge to not sweep sexual assault under the rug - I acknowledge that it happens all too often, and it is up to all of us to end it!
I pledge to support survivors.
I pledge to step in if I see something.
I pledge to intervene if someone is being threatened, harassed, or bullied.
I pledge to not use language that blames the victim/survivor.
I pledge to believe every person who discloses a sexual assault.
I pledge to promote consent..."May I hug you?" "May I kiss you" and cultivate a culture of mutual respect.
I pledge to acknowledge that sexual violence, assualt, rape and domestic violence has no bounds... anyone can be victimized: men, women, children, elderly, and in every class and ethnicity.
I pledge to be an ambassador for change - and work towards creating a supportive community.
I pledge to be a responsible parent and protect my child from those who harm.
If I am a survivor, I pledge to make the conscious choice to embark on a journey to heal - and know that healing is possible for everyone!
