UPDATE: Summer of sexual violence awareness in Colorado
By Jeni Ambrose, PhDc - Founder, Executive Director
We are excited to update you on the great progress your contribution to the MapYourVoice "Help support 1 million sexual violence survivors" campaign has made possible. In the roll up to Summer, our team has been gearing up for a targeted sexual violence public awareness campaign that will take place in the state of Colorado.
Colorado is a perfect place to demonstrate the recources MapYourVoice can bring to a community because (unfortunately) Colorado is home to the gamut of sexual violence issues MapYourVoice is designed to address - domestic sexual violence, child sexual abuse, sexual assault on campuses and throughout communities, and the fragile state of sexual victimization many undocumented migrants experience. And you may not have known it, but Denver International Airport is among the highest ranked airports for human trafficking.
This summer, our core volunteer team and a group of talented university interns from around the United States will descend upon Colorado, spearheading a statewide campaign to raise awareness and connect the dots between all forms of sexual violence. Our efforts will include collaborating with street-level survivors support and prevention organizations and bringing the public and private sectors onboard through sustained news and social media campaigns.
To support 2000+ survivors in Colorado on the MapYourVoice platform.
Plus, we plan to raise $50,000+ that will be donated directly to street-level organizations in Colorado to infuse their efforts with needed capital as we send more survivors their way through this campaign.
We will make sure to keep you up-to-date on how things go!
