“Being with survivors in their time of need makes me proud to be a part of overturning rape culture.”

“Volunteering as a rape crisis advocate for COMPASS has been fulfilling and humbling. Being with survivors in their time of need makes me proud to be a part of overturning rape culture.  I’m excited for the day when these services are no longer needed, but until then I’m proud to help this group.” – Nicole, Volunteer
