What if we could all have a tangible impact on the health and safety of our community by committing to one simple idea? That one simple idea is this: that when a survivor of sexual assault discloses, we start by believing. That one, simple idea is sweeping across Alberta, in large part due to the support of people like you.
Two years ago, the Association of Alberta Sexual Assault Services (AASAS) conceived of the #IBelieveYou campaign, which has now taken hold in campuses and communities across the province, reaching nearly 7 million people online. Even better, we’re changing attitudes and behavior.
We’ve come a long way, but we still have more to do and two more years to make #IBelieveYou a commonly understood response to survivors of sexual assault. You can help by adding your voice through social media; post a picture, video, or other message of support to our new message mosaic. Watch the mosaic fill with supportive messages throughout the life of the campaign here.
