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.

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!
In the U.S. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).
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.
