In 2013, Hope Haven of the Lowcountry served 521 primary victims of sexual assault and child abuse. In honor of April as Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month, please join Hope Haven on Friday, April 11, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park in downtown Beaufort for the 2014 Take Back the Night event to build communities intolerant of sexual violence and child abuse. Through spoken words of hope and healing from survivors, performers, and speakers young and old, and slam poets with their poetry to raise awareness, the event will shatter the silence of child abuse and sexual violence.
The event is free and all are welcome to attend and speak or perform. Lighting of luminaries will follow the event to honor the 521 survivors Hope Haven served last year. Come out to support this night of hope and inspiration! For more information, please contact Leigh-Ann Shoupe at 843-524-2256.
