I've loved and admired @AyannaPressley since my first #barccwalk4change in 2013. Seeing her speak is like seeing Shakespeare as it was meant to be played, as Sorkin would say. The only time I got choked up at Monday's rally was standing by her side as she took the stage to speak. The idea of getting to stand behind her and look out on that crowd, after making my own speech, is more than a dream come true. I snuck a quick picture of the moment, my only goofy tourist moment on the dais. 
Afterwards, a few kind folks made sure I got to speak to her - even though I've briefly met Ayanna before, I've never gotten a picture. I wound up with her and ghe equally powerful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, surrounded by reporters, and for once I was something approaching speechless. 
What I wanted to say is this: "We already have a Perpetrator in Chief, so why not a Survivor in Chief?" What I will never be able to fully express to her is what it has meant to hear her speak at the Walk every year, a living beacon of healing, rage, honesty, and hope, and what it means to have her truly represent us, and carry our voices with her to the halls of power in Washington DC. 
Thank you, Ayanna.

Ive never felt a personal connection to anyone in politics until I heard #AyannaPressley speak at a #BARCCwalk4change, and learning that #Local103 endorses her gave me a real opportunity to become more involved and volunteer my time in something I really believe in. We are all proud of her accomplishments and as fellow determined women, have a louder, stronger, more powerful voice. #ChangeCantWait Congratulations on your big win for the Seventh Congressional District, proud to have you represent #Boston!!! #WomenInConstruction

“Making this a marathon and not a sprint, making this a movement and not a moment, involves us being so gentle and loving with ourselves.” Still so motivated after @jaclynfable’s speech at last month’s Walk for Change! How will you be gentle with yourself today?

So proud of these kiddos! They rocked the #barccwalk4change last Sunday!
Sexual Assault Awareness Month has been the strangest cocktail of motivation, anger, hope, more anger, and absolute exhaustion this year. When our total was calculated, Change for Chantelle managed to reach our fundraising goal this time around for the survivors and support systems serviced by BARCC. That’s HUGE! My team vowed when they first assembled over a year ago to match a grand for each year we walk - we did it! Thank you for that! And to the people who spread my story, and who have garnered more support and kind words from strangers than I could have imagined, I am blessed to have you. I’m team get loud, and the further that word of my experiences travels, the more people will be willing to have the ugly talks necessary in the fight to end sexual violence. It’s never going to be easy, but it’s always going to be worth it. Today I am proud to be a survivor, a supporter, an advocate - but I’m even prouder to be a daughter, a niece, a sister, an aunt, a parent, a partner, a friend. Thank you Change for Chantelle, for encouraging this change in every facet of your lives and for having the ugly conversations by my side. You are my family, forever showing up for me and those like me, and I cannot adequately express the hope that gives me in all the exhaustion. So, CHEERS to Change for Chantelle, our fearless captains Mumma and Peony, our driven fundraisers, our benevolent doners, our inspirational survivors, and our guiding light @barccofficial 🧡💪💜

Part 2 of Jaclyn Friedman addressing the walkers at @barccofficial #barccwalk4change, regarding the ways we can fight  sexual violence and rape culture in our daily life. 
Especially important - call your representatives and ask them to push for comprehensive FACT-BASED SEX ED in public schools! I’m astonished that this isn’t mandatory here in Massachusetts where we think we’re so progressive! Comprehensive fact-based sex ed is proven to lower unintended pregnancies (therefore, fewer abortions!), STIs, and improves understanding of affirmative consent. Use @resistbot and contact your representatives wherever you are and fight 45’s efforts to roll back sex Ed nationwide to the abstinence-only dark ages!

The brilliant, trailblazing City Councilor @ayannapressley speaking before the start of the @barccofficial #BARCCWalk4Change with some galvanizing words. She’s an incredible woman who, as a survivor and a politician, has been engaged in this advocacy long before the #MeToo movement. It was an honor to hear her speak!

CW: Mentions of sexual assault and trauma.

Because today I walked with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center in their annual #barccwalk4change and I am full to the brim with emotions. Because being at an event centered around assault triggered so many feelings and all the trauma came bubbling back up, #intense and #loud and #fierce. But because this walk also reminded me that all of us survivors are louder and fiercer and we can continue to fight, to take back our #power, to speak our #truth. Because today as I wore purple beads along so many others to show that we are survivors, I was honestly amazed to realize I actually felt #unashamed and not #alone. Because seeing so many people coming together to make #change to end sexual violence was beyond beautiful and moving. Because to hear so many people say to me three simple words: “I believe you” meant more to me than I ever thought it could and broke my heart in the absolute best way possible. Because I had the #love and company of a very special person and a very special bunny as I walked (and cried), and the #support and #hugs from them as well as from all the other amazing people in my life has meant more than I could ever put into words. I am totally exhausted but I am also energized and feeling more at #peace than I have in a long time. Thank you, thank you, thank you @barccofficial for everything you do!

Self care Sunday: do something to support others. Today I had the privilege to support @barccofficial at the #barccwalk4change. Sexual violence affects each of us. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men have been the victim of sexual violence. It is time that we stand together to support survivors and work towards changing the rape culture.  If you are a survivor of sexual assault, I believe you. You are not alone. If you need support contact a support organization near you or call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE (4673) in the US.

Today was so emotional and so amazing.  To be able to walk in a group of other survivors with my parents, my aunts and my friends (and some cute dogs!) is the best feeling in the world ❤️ I was able to raise $774 for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center with the help of all of you and couldn’t be more thankful!  That give someone a security deposit for a new apartment to get them out of a dangerous situation, provides one survivor legal counsel during trial and allows a survivor to receive help 24-hours a day.  To say today was amazing is an understatement.  #barccwalk4change #endsexualviolence #rapesurvivor #bethechange

I participated in the @barccofficial #BARCCWalk4Change to show survivors of sexual assault and abuse that we support them, we believe them, and that we demand justice for them, comprehensive sex education, and an end to rape culture.

I heard of the walk last minute but still felt the need to join. Today, I walked for the survivors.
Sexual violence is always wrong, and needs to be talked about. Thank you to the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center for being a place where victims can be heard and begin healing.

I did this for my loved ones.

Like every year, this year again I went for BARCC's Walk for Change, for sexual assault awareness.
I really wanted to go this time, as a lot happened this year such as the Me Too and Times Up movement. It encouraged me (who used to be afraid to share as well as acknoweldge my experience) as well as so many others to speak up our stories. When I saw so many statuses, my heart broke and I saw that the problem is bigger than we all thought, and that we are not alone. 
Keeping this in mind, I joined the Berklee team and walked for all the survivors. Its time we bring some change. Its time that all of this stops. I hope no one gets to say Me too again because the Time is Up!
Its always good to walk for a good cause, chat with people, inspiring music, food, oh and lots of dogs and babies (my two favourites in the world).
This was fun. I realized this is my last time doing this as a Berklee student, but I can do this normally.

Like every year, this year again I went for BARCC's Walk for Change, for sexual assault awareness. I really wanted to go this time, as a lot happened this year such as the Me Too and Times Up movement. It encouraged me (who used to be afraid to share as well as acknoweldge my experience) as well as so many others to speak up our stories. When I saw so many statuses, my heart broke and I saw that the problem is bigger than we all thought, and that we are not alone. Keeping this in mind, I joined the Berklee team and walked for all the survivors. Its time we bring some change. Its time that all of this stops. I hope no one gets to say Me too again because the Time is Up! Its always good to walk for a good cause, chat with people, inspiring music, food, oh and lots of dogs and babies (my two favourites in the world). This was fun. I realized this is my last time doing this as a Berklee student, but I can do this normally. #barccwalk4change  #teamberklee  #showupforsurvivors  #timesup

The old pervert who assaulted me last year justified his actions to a courtroom full of people by saying he had "a natural visceral response" to the "tissue paper thin shorts" I was wearing that day. "She came around wearing those. Something bad was going to happen. I can't help the reptilian part of my brain. I don't have impulse control. Any man in here can understand--you saw her!"
Well, your "visceral response" was illegal. I was recovering from multiple prior traumas, and you added yourself to the list of men who have violated MY rights to MY body.
Today is important because standing up against sexual violence is important. Standing up for women is important. Standing up for fellow survivors is important. I AM IMPORTANT. And I choose to be heard, regardless of how uncomfortable that makes others. Rape should make you more uncomfortable than rape victims.
My history with sexual assault made me feel like 1) I was worthless and damaged 2) there would always be another incident and the nightmare would never end 3) I would never be capable of intimacy ever again 4) I would never trust men, let alone love men. 
My PTSD symptoms from previous assaults and boundaries I've laid out have been scoffed at by guys I've dated and friends I've trusted. 
Nobody tells you that the ‘rape talk’ will be a thing that has to happen before any romantic relationship gets too serious. Thankfully, some men will surprise you and hold your hand and weep with you when you tell them, because they can’t believe anyone would be capable of hurting you. 
PTSD isn’t cured by one blissful experience, and anxiety is a bitch. But time and love heals. For the first time, I'm in a healthy relationship where my soft and hard no's are respected, and that should be a standard not a miracle.
Closing reminder: Consent is clear, active, coherent, and enthusiastic. The lack of an overjoyed yes, is a no. Hesitation, "I don't know", "I'm not sure", etc. is a no. Being blackout drunk is a no. No means no.
