Sexual assault is a community issue that demands a community response.
We play an important role in communicating with law enforcement, district attorney’s offices and hospitals as victim-centered responses are developed. We serve as a community resource for statistics and information around the topic of sexual assault, and we take the lead of raising issue awareness through our door-to-door education and outreach.
Our goal is to enlist all members of our community to become part of the solution, either through contribution to the cause or as informed and engaged citizens who help prevent sexual assault through their actions.
It is our hope that one day we will live in a world where sexual assault no longer exists. This starts by believing that victims are never to blame. We know that every time we change the conversation around the issue, and educate people of all ages about their role in prevention, we get a step closer to that day.
Become part of the solution by helping us change the conversation. Speak up if you suspect someone is at risk of being assaulted. Volunteer at an event. Encourage your friends, family and co-workers to get involved. Donate to help fund critical school programs. Each of these is essential and important.
Why We Canvass
The Blue Bench has a team of passionate and informed community organizers who are committed to inspiring fellow community members to join us in our fight to end sexual assault. We find our door-to-door efforts to be an incredibly effective way to inform the public about the realities of sexual assault, to collect donations, and to ensure that every household in the Denver area knows this resource exists for them and their loved ones. In our efforts to reach out to as many people as possible, we knock on doors from 4-9 pm. Our community organizers are always out in groups and always make safety a top priority.
