Again this year, I am hosting a table at The Blue Bench’s “Changing the Conversation” Breakfast on Friday, October 9th from 7:30-9:00 a.m. at the Denver Athletic Club (1325 Glenarm Place, Denver, CO) in the Grand Ballroom (4th Floor). Will you please join me? This is an opportunity for you to learn more about the sexual assault support and prevention work that The Blue Bench is doing within our community. In the past couple of years, we have been able to join forces nationally to bring more strength and growth to our local efforts.
We are making great progress in building awareness around a subject that is very difficult for many people to discuss. The reason why our work cannot end, is because sexual assault and sexual violence still occurs, many times unreported and with victims not receiving the support they need after a major life-changing event. Back in April, we held a very successful event in Denver and were grateful for the support of the community. The “Start By Believing” campaign was introduced to many at that event and it’s gaining momentum. Take a look here to learn a little more> Warning: It may give you chills as it did to me.
After watching the short video, you might better understand why victims decide not to come forward about their assault and/or why sexual violence and rape is significantly under reported. We must make it a safer place for all people to talk about a difficult subject. Not only does The Blue Bench support victims, their families and friends, but the organization believes in prevention and advocacy. At our last board meeting, I was very excited to hear about some of our new prevention and education programs that the staff at The Blue Bench are working hard towards implementing in our community.
Do you know what a bystander is and how a bystander can be an important aspect to our work in preventing sexual violence? A bystander is neither a potential perpetrator nor victim, but instead a person who would want to be part of the solution. This can be you! All people can help prevent sexual assault by becoming an active bystander and our Pathways to Prevention Programs teach students, adults, professionals, all people, how to:
• Understand and notice signs, media, and culture that encourage inappropriate sexual behavior/violence
• Develop skills to safely intervene as a bystander
• Understand their own barriers to bystander intervention
• Identify, empathize, safely intervene and support a friend/loved-one
• Learn about local resources available to both survivors of sexual violence and their loved-ones
We need your care and support to continue funding these efforts. The breakfast is free to attend; however, I hope that once you see and hear from staff and supporters of the organization you will consider making a contribution The Blue Bench. Most importantly, I want you to come and find out about the work we are doing. I truly appreciate your past support and hope you might help me continue to change the conversation around sexual assault and sexual violence. Together, we can make the world a safer place.
We must take victims seriously and not further victimize them when they decide to stand up for themselves! For over 30 years, The Blue Bench (formerly called RAAP – Rape Awareness and Assistance Program), has been Denver’s only comprehensive sexual assault prevention and support center. The organization serves both female and male victims and their families/friends as they progress on their journey toward healing. Cost should never be a barrier to receive support, so the support services are provided free of charge. Domestic violence and sexual assault often go hand-in-hand and most of us are aware of the recent, prevailing news stories.
Will you please let me know if you are able to attend asap so that I may reserve you a seat? Please kindly RSVP to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that I can ensure you a seat at my table. If you would like to learn more about The Blue Bench, please checkout the website> . Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
