#MeToo.

Social media is being flooded with messages from those who tagged their profiles to indicate that they have been sexually harassed or assaulted.

Dear Friends of 180,

Recently actress Alyssa Milano tweeted a note that read: “If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote “MeToo” as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.” The #MeToo movement started in response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal. I encourage you to read more about this and my conversation with the Asbury Park Press in the attached article here:

As always, if you or someone you know is in need of 180’s Sexual Violence Services, including supportive counseling for survivors – both adult and teen, and regardless of when the assault occurred, we are here for you. 180 can assist with advocacy and accompaniment through medical, police and legal proceedings and our caring and professional staff will guide survivors in trauma recovery in a safe, supportive and confidential environment.
Our 24-hour Sexual Violence Hotline is confidential and anonymous: 1.888.264.RAPE.

Sincerely,

Anna Diaz-White

Executive Director
