Rape Victim Advocates Statement of Solidarity

Rape Victim Advocates is an Illinois not-for-profit organization made up of many individuals with two primary goals: to assure that survivors of sexual assault are treated with dignity and compassion; and to affect changes in the way the legal system, medical institutions and society as a whole respond to survivors. RVA focuses on both social service and social change. On Friday April 1 2011, RVA hosted “Enemies of Silence: A Night of Poetry and Performance” at the Chicago Cultural Center to kick off Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Venus Collective was honored to be able to assist by recommending two performers from past Venus Shows: Natalie Grace Alford and KrisdelaRash.
