Join me and Steve and Ceanna and walk for change, on behalf of the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. On April 10th we will be walking as a community. Walk to make a statement about sexual violence. Join the kids, college students, police, nurses, volunteer and staff members, survivors, family members, and other community members who will participate. I have been affiliated with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center since first coming to Boston in 1979. I have watched our organization develop from an all volunteer grassroots rape crisis program housed in a room of a large house, located in Cambridge, not far from our current location. This space, The Women's Center housed a variety of feminist groups advocating for change. Today BARCC continues to be a thriving organization working on many of the same issues that we mobilized around in the early years of the rape crisis movement. Today a committed staff joins in providing the hard work along with the many volunteers, still a central part of our organization. We serve survivors and significant others with a range of hotline, medical advocacy, and counseling services. We also provide a range of prevention and education services. We advocate for policy change and are crucial in our efforts in each of these arenas. Please look at our website for an enhanced view of who we are and the work we do. Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and thank you for joining with us to support these efforts.
Here's how your donations can help:
$25 helps BARCC answer two hotline calls.
$75 pays for medical accompaniment to a hospital emergency room by a trained volunteer.
$200 supports the first three sessions of free counseling for survivors and their families.
$1,000 allows a new volunteer or intern to attend BARCC’s comprehensive training program.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
