Collection: #Starttheconversation Collection

 

Sexual Assault

In Texas, 2 in 5 women and 1 in 5 men have been sexually assaulted, yet over 91% of victims do not report to law enforcement. Texas, we have to talk.   

We need to talk about why victims don’t feel safe reporting such a heinous crime and how we can support victims to come forward before others are hurt.

When you wear a piece from our collection, you boldly lead that conversation.  Funds from your purchase support our expert training to law enforcement and prosecutors on trauma-informed interview techniques and best practice prosecution strategies.  Y’all, it’s time to #starttheconversation
