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 🧡💪💜

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.

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.

My friends, this year's Walk for Change is rapidly approaching and I'm only about halfway to my goal.  If you're not totally burned out with all the media coverage of sexual assault and the #metoomovement please consider throwing a few dollars my way to help support BARCC's free services for survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones.  As a medical advocate I regularly observe how much it means for survivors to have at least one supportive person who believes them - and for some people, BARCC is the only way they can get that support. https://www.classy.org/fundraiser/1242334

Ahhhh! I am so very proud of my best bestie for sharing her story and helping others to heal! She is incredible! Even the strongest fiercest women can be victimized, something so many of us know from experiences we'd usually rather not talk about. This beautiful lady is raising her voice and helping give back a voice to people who have suffered and recovered. I'm so blessed to count her among my nearest and dearest. Love you K-Dub!  #Repost Absolutely thrilled to publicly share that I will be the keynote speaker for the 2017 BARCC Gala and Auction! Nothing I have ever done has been as meaningful as volunteering for this organization, I honestly could not be more proud to be working with them.

Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who donated, supported, or cheered us on this year.  No one should know what it feels like to experience sexual violence, and all survivors should have the space to heal.  Your support is a running leap towards that reality.  #showupforsurvivors #barccwalk4change #clotheslineproject

A note to survivors at yesterday's Boston Area Rape Crisis Center Walk for Change: "When I was raped, I wanted my rapist to admit what he did. He claims I didn't say no enough. I know it was rape. I let go of needing him to believe me. Trust yourself. You know what is consent." Thank you to @barccofficial for supporting people who have experienced sexual assault!
