April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Sexual violence thrives in silence,
so let’s start talking.
This April is time to feel safe & respected—
All the time.
Let’s break that silence
And talk about it all.
Join me in the effort to raise public awareness,
Spread the word about healthy sexuality,
Promote knowledge & respect,
And prevent sexual violence.
There’s nothing more important than how we feel about ourselves.
Tweet on Tuesdays

I’m Taking the Pledge
I, Alyssa Kirby, promise to engage in relationships that value respect, equality, trust and honesty, for both myself and my partners. I will value my partner’s boundaries online & behind closed doors.
I will never engage in any form of abuse –
physical, emotional, sexual, financial or digital.
If one of my friends experiences abuse, I pledge to help them by speaking up & saying something,
modeling healthy communication, & connecting them with the necessary resources.
I pledge to remember, demonstrate & promote the fact that love is respect.
