10% Tuesdays in April for Call to Safety
Each Tuesday this April, 10% of our sales at She Bop will go to Call to Safety (formerly Portland Women’s Crisis Line). Call to Safety is a hugely important organization that offers 24/7 support to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. They offer services such as a crisis line, safety planning, peer support, and referrals to community resources. Call to Safety is an invaluable asset to our community, and we are honored to be able to give back to them for the tireless work that they do.
April is also Sexual Assault Awareness Month. According to RAINN, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted every 2 minutes. This unfortunate statistic is a reality for 1 out of every 6 American women. Here are a few resources for thinking about and combating sexual assault.
- Yes Means Yes
- End the Backlog — working to reduce the number of untested rape kits
- Rape Culture 101
We also carry the books Healing Sex and The Sexual Healing Journey, which aim to help survivors of sexual trauma reclaim their sex lives.
