Resources and information to help ensure that there is no safe haven for predation and sexual assault in our arts communities and organizations. The second in a series of quarterly events, featuring speakers from RPD, UNR, SASS, Crisis Call Center and advocates from all walks of life.
One of the hopes and intended consequences of this Town Hall is to bring awareness of the resources available to people who have experienced sexual assault, their families, friends and advocates. To create environments within the arts community, its works spaces, gatherings, organizations and events that foster support, respect and the safety of all artists and supporters of the arts.
It is our hope that those who express interest in this event, follow through on their personal convictions and act, be present and participate in the Town Hall and add their voices to the cause, in support of their sisters, daughters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers and wives and to teach, inform and educate their sons, brothers, others and fellow creators about the ways that we all can work together to end sexual violence and assault, one person at a time.
The event is on Sunday, January 15, the day before Martin Luther King’s birthday (which is a national holiday). This date allows for greater participation, so please mark your calendars and plan on bringing a friend. And thank you for being part of the solution, part of the discussion and part of the healing.
It can happen to any of us; we invest so much time in worrying about others that we fail to take care of ourselves. That’s understandable, but it isn’t going to help anyone in the long run. An old teacher of mine once told me, “If we give everything we have to someone else we become the ones in need.” So, don’t stop caring, but don’t forget to take care of you.
Here are some great tips for taking care of yourself on any given day:
1) Fuel your body right: Try to eat balanced meals and give the body the nutrition it craves daily. Try to exercise at least a few times a week. Don’t have time? Try crock pot recipes to save time that would’ve been spent cooking towards gyming!
2) Pursue your intellectual passions: Read up on that hobby you love or do ‘that thing’ that you’ve been wanting to start today instead of watching another rerun or distracting yourself with some simpler entertainment. Progress towards a goal can be very rewarding.
3) Communicate more: We humans are social creatures. We crave the company of others in some way. When’s the last time you talked to an old friend? A family member? Wrote a letter or a card? Take time out of your day to engage others in your day; it could brighten up yours and another’s day!
Have a great week, and remember to take care of numero uno!
A recent article published by the Huffington Post is an important reminder of how our perceptions of the world today can be so different from what actually is.
Today, the national crime rate is about half of what it was at its height in 1991. Violent crime has fallen by 51 percent since 1991, and property crime by 43 percent. In 2013 the violent crime rate was the lowest since 1970. And this holds true for unreported crimes as well.
We’re excited to share with everyone the revelation that our country is getting safer every year–even if the media may not portray it. We want everyone to be safe, stay healthy, and lead a good life. Should anything ever bad happen, whatever that is, we want to be there to help. We can be called 24/7/365–(775)784-8090–Crime may slowly be getting to sleep, but we’re always awake.
Have a great day!
This front office is the face of our efforts to invite brave survivors to sit down, process, and ask any questions they have about anything. We discuss whatever is on their mind and will give them all the information they could need to make a decision that is right for them. Whatever that is, once our survivors are ready to move forward we support them in any way we can. What matters most to us is that they’re safe and on the way towards healing!
The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educated communities on how to prevent it. Sexual violence is a major public health, human rights, and social justice issue. We need everyone’s help to end it.
Teal is the official color of SAAM. The teal ribbon is the symbol of sexual violence prevention.
