The Zer0Now Campaign is proud to join with the campaign against Gender-Based Violence and its 16 days of activism.We will be adding our voice to that call for change and for a re-commitment of government and policy leaders to ending gender-based violence and the institutional betrayal that so often adds to the trauma and prevents women from coming forward.
The Zer0Now Campaign™ supports victims of sexual violence and sexual harassment by fostering a culture of compassion and trauma-informed care, and by combating the cycle of fear, silence and institutional betrayal that inflicts so much avoidable harm on victims coming forward.
By supporting victims with respect and compassion, by sharing the experiences of others, by advocating for change and by creating healing initiatives that can help survivors rebuild their lives, we’re proud to be making a transformative difference in the lives of those who most need it.
Who do we admire most in this #MeToo era? The often unsung, but truly heroic, women from every field who are standing up against sexual violence and institutional betrayal — in the courts, the military, law enforcement, the campuses and in the everyday workplace. They put their health, and even their lives, at risk in doing so. Tragically, some who have come forward never lived to see the healing outcome they desperately sought because in doing so they experienced re-traumatization that became unbearable. Most never had the equivalent of a TimesUp version of a legal support team with deep legal pockets to see them through their ordeals. We all need to make everyone more aware of the price victims have to pay, and change the culture that allows sexual violence and its devastating aftermath that to happen.
3 Musts for Victim Survival
