Safe Before Anyone Else...is sexually assaulted, harassed, abused, gaslit, victimized and revictimized, traumatized and retraumatized, violated, and harmed. That's what SafeBAE stands for, and I'm very excited to share that after joining the board of directors for SafeBAE earlier this year, I have recently been asked to serve as one of the co-Chairs of the board. The work is very personal to me, and I hold it very close to my heart to protect all kids and prevent abuse and violence in their lives, because we all deserve a life free of violence, especially children.
But the thing is, SafeBAE's work with middle and high school aged students is vital for the safety of EVERYONE. People don't always make the connection of all the areas that such violence touches our lives, so I wanted to share with you some of the impacts our work has on the younger generations as well as your lives.
Here are a few ways that SafeBAE impacts yours and future generations' lives.
These are just a few reasons SafeBAE's work matters. Help us empower kids to be leaders and activists, and CHANGE THE CULTURE. We are beyond tired and frustrated with seeing a new case each week in which a sexual assault victim, a child, is punished for reporting a crime, while the perpetrator is allowed to continue on with life and even protected by the school. It's not right. It should be the other way around. Schools not only have a legal obligation to protect our kids, but a moral one.
And I cannot say this enough, the work we do, the work that the kids do when they're young, is work that affects all of us and every aspects of our lives. Our work helps end gender-based violence. Our work helps achieve gender equality. Our work helps close the gap on social and economic disparities. This means, that our work is one vital component of achieving sustainability for future generations.
So, as you consider your end-of-year givings, please consider giving to SafeBAE. All of our resources and programs are FREE to kids, because we want to ensure that they are accessible to all kids. So, your contribution allows us to continue what we're doing and grow what we're doing. We won't stop until our organization is no longer needed.
If you got this far, thank you for reading and thank you for your support.
