“Give Them A Voice” Supports Survivors of Sexual Abuse / Assault

 

On September 2nd, 2017, Outpost hosted our 4th annual “Give Them A Voice” fundraiser to support Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Assault.  This month, we presented our two chosen organizations, the Zacharias’ Center for Sexual abuse (above left), and the Lake County Children’s Advocacy Center (above right), with the donations our participants made possible.  Talk about it.  Press charges. Get informed.  BELIEVE disclosures. Heal, empower, and thrive again!

1 in 4 women, and 1 in 6 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

1 in every 7 victims of sexual assault is UNDER THE AGE OF 6.

1 in 4 victims of sexual assault under the age of 12 is a BOY.

In 8 out of 10 cases of sexual assault, the victim knows the perpetrator. (And in many cases has been told to trust that person).

Sex Offenders within 1 mile of the Gurnee Police Department are listed in the picture below.  Know the Convicted perpetrators in your area. Click here and enter your address.  Stay vigilant.
