WESTMINSTER

WHEN A VICTIM COMES TO YOU,
HOW WILL YOU RESPOND?

When someone tells you they were raped or sexually assaulted, knowing how to respond is critical. A negative response can worsen the trauma and foster an environment where perpetrators face no consequences for their crimes.

Start by Believing stops this cycle by improving our personal and professional reactions.

In Westminster we start by believing. Representatives from over 15 organizations that serve Westminster have that come together to help build awareness on the issue of sexual assault and how to respond if someone disclose to you that they have been assaulted.

I PLEDGE TO:

  • START BY BELIEVING WHEN SOMEONE TELLS ME THEY WERE RAPED OR SEXUALLY ASSAULTED
  • SUPPORT SURVIVORS ON THE ROAD TO JUSTICE AND HEALING
  • HELP END THE SILENCE
