Educate the public about sexual assault and violence against women by sharing your own story.
Personal stories of surviving sexual assault and violence against women can be intimidating and scary to share with others, but that's exactly what the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network needs. RAINN's very special to me, as their online chatroom once saved me in my darkest hour. Are you a survivor, or do you know someone who is? RAINN needs people willing to speak to schools and communities, participate in magazine interviews (anonymously, if desired), write columns, or share stories on their web site. Your story might be the one to inspire another to get help. Let's do it together.

Or, share your Story below about how you're using your personal experiences to educate others about violence against women. Organizations and schools in your community need you.
