Surviving in Numbers has worked with military survivors to give them a safe space to share their experiences of sexual violence. Sexual assault in the military is prevalent for people of all genders, with many who report sexual violence reporting experiencing it at least twice while serving.
Surviving in Numbers has officially become federally recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity! All donations have been and remain tax-deductible. To celebrate this exciting milestone, the website has a new, more streamlined look.
In addition, featured today on Al Jazeera America is an article on how high schools mishandle sexual assaults. We know from a recent surge in media coverage that colleges mishandle sexual assaults much of the time, but high schools do it, too — and have been largely ignored.
Surviving in Numbers has been on display at the Massachusetts State House this week! If you are able to visit, you can see it in Doric Hall until tomorrow afternoon. The event was sponsored by Senator Cynthia Creem of Newton, who has done a lot of important work on domestic violence.
