I was recognized by Peace Over Violence for my daily stand against violence against women in the City of Los Angeles. Peace Over Violence is an incredible organization that works tirelessly to end sexual violence against women. They lead us annually in “Denim Day” which highlights the struggles victims often face when their attackers place blame for his assault on the characteristics or activities of the victim. Peace Over Violence reminds us that no one invites someone else to rape them, and there can be no excuses for sexual violence. They also remind us that it is the responsibility of every one of us to be advocates against sexual violence.
I personally encourage people to be Fearless Over Violence, because when we stand up and take on these horrific problems head on, we are stronger and more successful in bringing change. We must be advocates for victims, and work together every day to all be champions against the violence far too many women face every day.
