Rape IS Rape - Shatter the Silence of Sexual Violence
Petition Background (Preamble):
According to the US Department of Justice, every two minutes someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. Sexual assault is one of the most under reported crimes, with 60% still being left unreported.The outcry of support for a sexual assault perpetrator sends a dangerous message to victims across the globe that they will be forever silenced and blamed for these atrocious acts of sexual violence.
PAVE (Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment) is seeking support to help shatter the silence of sexual violence. Sign our petition calling on support for survivors of sexual violence and holding perpetrators accountable.
We, the undersigned, denounce sexual acts on any human being who does not consent.
We, the undersigned, urge our leaders to ensure the rights of survivors of sexual assault in our criminal justice system.
We, the undersigned, call on public figures, directors, actors, producers, and the general public to stop blaming victims and hold perpetrators accountable.
