Speak to your house of worship, school and/or community center about starting a sexual violence ministry, support group or teen support group. For this endeavor, make sure to bring in local rape crisis centers as partners from the onset of your planning.

Engage Local Leaders

Engage local leaders on this issue. Work with clergy, government officials, community organizers and teachers to start a community-wide conversation about sexual violence against women and the disproportionate discrimination experienced by Black women

Support Women of Color

Work with, listen to, support and follow the leadership of women of color. Ensure that Black women and their stories are at the center of any action items you take by providing a dedicated platform to uplift their work.

Speak Up

If in a position of leadership or management, think about the ways in which you can share the information you learned today with your team. We call on faith leaders, in particular, to write a sermon for your congregants and share that experience with us at XXX.
