About the Event

Survivors of Sexual Assault are often not heard from their relatives and friends, and this results in a constant internal struggle. People who identify as survivors can feel validated and be heard. Through this webinar, anyone who has experienced sexual assault can inform themselves that they are not alone, and that there are people who are willing to listen to their story. This will be an opportunity to provide resources to survivors on this topic, and this will be a chance to give a platform to experts about sexual assault to survivors and allies.

About Emmanuel:

I’m a Loyola University Chicago student majoring in Psychology. I’m a Spring 2022 Program Intern for Self-Reclaimed, and I’m super chill. I feel like a lot of people don’t understand the severity of sexual assault and how relevant it is, especially in student life. It’s like an avoided topic. I want to spread the idea of advocating for survivorship and spreading the importance of sexual assault awareness.
