This item comes courtesy of my buddy Judy over at Bad Advice. She writes:
If you could publicize this, I’d be so grateful… I’m also copying and pasting the press release letter.
No problem. Here’s the 411 per the press release!
Safe Horizon Brooklyn Rape and Sexual Assault Program is proud to present Brooklyn’s second annual SAYSO! (Sexual Assault Yearly Speak Out!). SAYSO! is dedicated to promoting healing and raising awareness about sexual assault and New York City’s specialized rape crisis services. SAYSO! is planned for April 13th 2011 from 3:00 to 7:30 pm and will be held in Cadman Plaza, outside of Brooklyn Borough Hall.
Safe Horizon is the nation’s leading victim assistance organization. The Brooklyn Rape and Sexual Assault Program provides time-limited counseling and advocacy to survivors of sexual assault, along with their families and friends. The program also raises awareness of sexual violence through presentations and outreach.
This year, we are organizing Brooklyn’s second annual SAYSO! event in conjunction with the Kings County District Attorney’s Office. From 6:00 to 7:00 pm on the day of the event, they will be presenting VOICE OUT (Victims On the Impact of Crime Event), a program to honor victims of all crimes.
We are reaching out to you due to your insight and connections to the rape and sexual assault community. We invite you to become involved in the following ways:
- Represent your organization at a table
- Speak – share about how sexual violence has affected you and/or your community
- Perform – dance, read a poem, play music, sing, etc.
- Recruit your clients, friends, family or peers to speak or perform
- Facilitate a healing activity of your choice
