Statement on the Presidential Election
Today and every day, the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence pledges to stand with all survivors of sexual violence; to advocate passionately for the services, programs, and policies they need to heal and thrive; and work with determination for comprehensive prevention in our communities and an end to rape culture. Today and every day, we stand against racism, sexism, xenophobia, poverty, and homophobia and pledge to continue to advocate for a country in which all people are valued and protected. We call on our leaders to model respectful, non-violent behavior and speech. We implore all people in the United States, but especially our elected officials, to join with us to realize a society where sexual violence is unacceptable; survivors are supported; and justice is attainable.
