THE SILENT VICTIMS OF COVID-19
One of the most alarming, and least known, side effects of COVID is a surge in sexual violence against the elderly, children, and those stuck at home with their attackers. With this new “shelter-in-place” lifestyle, where nearly everything is done virtually (at home), there is a whole segment of our population that goes hidden and undetected — victims living in the same home with their abusers! Children that once sought safety at school, or adults that utilized work or public spaces as safe havens no longer have that option.
With this surge of sexual violence, we need your help now more than ever. Please join us today in restoring dignity to victims of sexual violence.
