Join the Women’s Center of Jacksonville for a staged reading of a survivor’s victim-impact statement. A former Stanford student who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman was only sentenced to six months in jail because the judge deemed a longer sentenced would have “a severe impact on him.” At his sentencing, the survivor was able to read her perpetrator a letter describing the impact that the assault had on her life. All sales from this staged reading will go to benefit the Women’s Center of Jacksonville, the Certified Rape Crisis Center, serving Nassau, Duval, and Baker Counties.
The Women’s Center of Jacksonville is a nonprofit, Jacksonville-based organization offering education, support and advocacy to women and men who have survived sexual assault. Each year, the Women’s Center of Jacksonville provides 300 sexual assault survivors with forensic exams. The Women’s Center of Jacksonville is the only certified rape crisis center in Duval, Baker and Nassau Counties and also offers community education, counseling, referral assistance, rape prevention services and breast cancer education, support and advocacy at complimentary and affordable prices.
