Sisterhood's gonna get ya....

 
We know that it's common for people who have experienced a sexual assault to feel alone in what they're going through. It can be difficult to reach out and find support, especially because sexual assault is not often talked about within mainstream culture or even among trusted friends or family. For anyone who is dealing with the aftermath of a sexual assault, or just having a hard time dealing with rape culture in general, please do email us with your thoughts (garneau.sisterhood@gmail.com) and we'll be there for you in whatever way we can. That said, email can be slow and we want to make sure that people get the full support they need. The agencies below are there exactly for that purpose - to provide support, care, and advocacy. Please note that we're not affiliated with these agencies in any way, but we have heard positive things about them:
