Actress Sophia Bush, best known for her role in NBC hit Chicago P.D., took to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to call attention to sexual assault and self-defense. Her posts were in support of the Survivor Stories series in partnership with RAINN (the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), our nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization.
The post went viral with more than 10 million impressions, and was even featured on Hello Giggles (a website founded in part by Zooey Deschanel).
My #wcw yesterday went out to all the ladies who've ever felt afraid, or threatened, and to all of you who are survivors. Did you know that every day in the United States there are 804 incidents of sexual assault? Well April is National Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month, and I'm proud to see so many women, and men, taking a stand. Last year I dealt with months of terrifying threats on my life from a stalker, and one of the law enforcement officers I met with gave me some Sabre tools. He said, "listen, you shouldn't HAVE to carry these, but until you feel safe enough not to, I want you to feel confident." This month @sabresafety announced their partnership with @RAINN01, the world’s largest anti-sexual assault organization, to raise awareness about sexual assault. They are sharing survivor’s stories and empowering people to take control of their personal safety. A % of proceeds from the red alarm are being donated to RAINN, and for the whole month of April, donations made directly to RAINN with be MATCHED by donors! Now THAT gives me confidence that eventually we won't have to feel afraid anymore. Thank you #Sabre for taking a stand with us - #SurvivorStories #SAAPM #RAINN learn more at http://bit.ly/19GaqNP
