Just like our tagline says, we begin by believing. We believe in the possibility for change. In the strength and resilience of communities. We believe New Jersey can be a safer and more just place for everyone.
We believe your story- your experience- is one that deserves to be heard if you choose to share it.
We believe you. And we believe in you.
We are honored and humbled as we engage in this work. To be trusted to do the work that needs to be done. You are with us each and every day as we chart the course.
For some of us, this is a love letter to ourselves. A note reminding us we are not what happened and to love the person we are today. For all of us, this is a letter thanking you for your courage and reming you that you deserve every smile, laugh, and moment of peace and strength.
As we crafted these words, each of us held someone in our mind and heart. A friend. A family member. These words are meant for all. Every survivor, victim, activist, or person who has been impacted by these crimes and actions.
We see you.
We hear you.
We believe you.
Your friends and allies,
the team at
New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault
