RAINN spokesperson Christina Ricci is visiting DC to ensure that the national conversation about health care does not neglect survivors of rape and sexual violence. She writes about this issue on Huffington Post:
Ms. Ricci emphasizes the point that while sexual violence sometimes occurs in only the space of a few moments, the effects can last for lifetimes. This is why we need to continue to voice our outrage and to demand that money and attention is spent on this important cause.
Also, new stories and poetry have been added.
I want to thank the members of the RAINN Speaker’s Bureau who were brave enough to share their stories with End the Silence. Their stories, poetry, and artwork can be found throughout the site. I hope that other readers are inspired by these words. Please feel free to leave comments for the authors.
End the Silence is still seeking new submissions of poetry, stories, and artwork. Send submissions to email@example.com and let your voice be heard.
