    Seeking Help For Sexual Assault

    in Parents

    As a victim/survivor of sexual assault, you may have some of the following feelings...


    Anger, Fear, Guilt, Loss of control, Powerlessness, Embarrassment, Depression, Isolation, Denial, Shame, Disbelief, Self-blame, Emotional shock


    You may experience some or all of the above feelings. This is natural and every victim/survivor of sexual assault responds differently. (http://www.connsacs.org/seeksupport/assaulted.htm)


    Remember, you are not alone and you are not to blame for what happened.


    "Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are." - Rachel Naomi Remen

    Sexual Assault in the Melanin Community

    in Culture

    DISCLAIMER: This is an open format show where topics on sexual assault will be discussed. We encourage any survivor who has experienced any similar situations to seek professional counseling in order to promote their personal healing process.


    Silence is not always golden. Within our community lies an elephant in the room...a form of force and implementation of sexual bullying which attempts to render its victims as powerless. As the number of sexual assault cases rise, some wonder why the violators often go unpunished. Why aren't more women speaking out against such injustices? Does the violation of the body lead to a broken spirit? Is there strength after facing such an undesirable setting? What are some of the scenarios that create such a situation?


    Tune in and listen to a story of strength and endurance...of self-preservation, self-worth, and self-actualization...and the aftermath that follows. We invite our listeners to call in and share your stories anonymously in the hopes of reaching someone who has not yet found their voice.


    Let's dissect and build.

    Sexual Assault Awareness Month

    in Entertainment

    Sexual violence encompasses a variety of criminal acts, ranging from sexual threats to unwanted contact to rape. These crimes are extremely underreported because of the stigma associated with sexual assault—and are therefore difficult to count in official statistics. Forcible rapes known to law enforcement have declined sharply since 1979, when they were at an all-time high. Sexual assault can happen to anyone of any age, gender, race, and socioeconomic background. It can happen at any time or place. Assailants may be strangers, acquaintances, friends, or family members. Perpetrators may use violence, threats, coercion, manipulation, or other forms of pressure or deception to commit sexual assault. 


    Join us as we use this platform to educate and bring awareness to you about sexual violence.
