Couldn’t Find What You Were Looking For?

This campaign has set out to change the way the public—mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, and family—responds to someone who has been sexually assaulted. This is a big issue because sexual assault is one of the most under-reported crimes. But that’s changing.
Over the past three years, this campaign has increased the number of Albertans who would give a positive, compassionate response to a sexual assault survivor from 21% to 77%, and the number who would use the words I believe you from <1% to 21%. This is a tremendous shift in a short time.
