Take the Pledge Today. 30 Days of Action. 30 dollars for 30 days.
For a survivor of sexual violence on the path to healing, the uncertainty of COVID-19 doesn’t distract – it only adds to the anxiety and pain. This is why essential services like trauma-informed therapy and a 24/7 crisis hotline are so important right now. And Northwest CASA staff are still providing those crucial services for free. With the postponement of our largest, annual event, Casino Night, we need your support now more than ever to continue providing these services. Survivors are relying on you. Join our movement and pledge $30 for 30 days of April.
Although it may feel we are living in constant uncertainty, April is still Sexual Assault Awareness Month. While we are home – we can use our collective voices to bring awareness to the issue of sexual violence. One day the quarantine will be lifted, perhaps we can emerge a better society. It all depends on what we do with our time now. How we care for ourselves and how we care for each other.
So please join us in #SAAM – chalk your walk, decorate your front window, share posts, participate in social media competitions & GIVE. Help raise awareness and advocate for the rights of survivors everywhere…virtually. Join the movement. #WeAreNWCASA
