Comment on Proposed Title IX Regulation Changes #MeToo #TimesUp #EndRapeCulture

The changes Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, has proposed will have detrimental life-long consequences to our current and future generations of students. This does not just effect college age students. Title IX Regulations are also for K-12 students. All students have a right to attend school free from sexual assault and harassment of any kind, including those that happen off-campus by students.

SD Voyager Magazine Inspiring Stories recognizes my Victim Advocacy work

Victim advocacy work is something we advocates do because of a desire to serve others and to help victims reclaim their power. It is not full of testimonials and 5-star reviews because most of our work is confidential and very personal and private. We don't do this work for the recognition but it is nice to be recognized for the work we do. 

Thank you to SD Voyager Magazine for including my story in their online community magazine Inspiring Stories section.

If You Don't Serve Justice, We Will and We Did #RecallPersky

If You Don't Serve Justice, We Will and We Did #RecallPersky

I cried when I saw the news that our campaign to recall Judge Aaron Persky was successful. There hasn’t been a judge recalled in the state of California for 86 years, but we did it! Although I wasn’t able to vote because I don’t live in Santa Clara county, I know I helped by speaking up and sharing. I have a renewed sense of determination. My tanks have been refilled, I can keep going in my fight to seek justice for victims.
