5. Sexual violence is never the survivor’s fault. Tell your friends. Tell your mother. Tell your cousins. It’s important that we all understand this. #BelieveBlackGirls #BelieveBlackWomen #BlackWomenSurvive
On average, it takes a survivor 7 attempts before they leave an abusive situation for good. It may be frustrating, but they will only leave when they’re ready

If you or a loved one have been impacted by sexual violence contact us at (646)-647-5414/5 or counseling@blueprintny.org
7. Isolation is a key component of abuse.

A great way to intervene in sexually abusive situations is to encourage your loved one to be in community. Let them know they are not alone in their pain. #BelieveBlackWomen #BelieveBlackGirls
