“It’s our collective responsibility to stand with survivors and fight for the voiceless but we must also raise our standards, teach responsibly against stigmas, re-educate ourselves and our children. Thank you Resilience for leading the way in your community. Together we will change the world.”

RESILIENCE Mission

Resilience is an Illinois not-for-profit organization made up of many individuals with two primary goals: to assure that survivors of sexual assault are treated
with dignity and compassion; and to effect changes in the way the legal system, medical institutions and society as a whole respond to survivors.
