Taylor Swift’s trial brought sexual violence into the limelight and her refusal to back down or be guilted showed the world she will not be silenced – and neither will we.
We all play a role in creating a world free of sexual violence. The voices of supporters, like you, are essential to counter those who diminish and ignore sexual violence. Every gift to RVA sends a message that your voice and commitment is also unwavering.
“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this,” Swift said in a statement following the verdict.
With your help, our legal advocacy services are free to survivors and their loved ones. We’re here to walk with survivors throughout the legal process – whether that be filing a police report or a petition for a protective order, accompanying clients to hearings, or discussing alternatives to the criminal justice system. Every $1 helps us continue to be a dependable source of comfort and strength for survivors.
“My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard.”
