Earlier this year I was honored to be asked to join the board of SARA, the Sexual Assault Resource Agency here in Charlottesville, VA. As a board member, donor, survivor and as someone who has worked with survivors of sexual assault and trauma, I know the positive impact of SARA. SARA partners with the community to eliminate sexual violence and its impact by providing education, advocacy and support to men, women, and children.
This year, SARA is celebrating its 40th Anniversary. I envision a time when organizations like this won’t need to provide survivor services. That this hope I shared in the video below.
