Healing & Community Action Survey

"Dear Friends, 

First, let me thank you for agreeing to participate in our survey. We are building this from the ground up and can't possibly do it without you. These questions are designed to help us determine what's currently working for survivors of sexual violence in your community and where the gaps exist. We want to know who is getting it right, and how they are doing it. The results of this survey will be used to ensure that our online tools for survivors are comprehensive, inclusive and well resourced. I anticipate this survey taking between 15-30 minutes to complete, depending on how many resources you have to share. 

The 'me too.' Movement is by and about survivors. We are building what we need together. Thank you for your participation. Thank you for trusting us. Thank you for standing up.
