At The Blue Bench, our mission is to eliminate sexual assault and diminish the impact it has on individuals, their loved ones and our community through comprehensive issue advocacy, prevention and care.
To truly change rape culture requires a paradigm shift and a complete restructuring in how we think and talk about the issue of sexual assault.
We use a community-based approach to prevention, ensuring schools, businesses, law enforcement and beyond are committed to survivor-centered responses and sexual violence education.
Changing attitudes means changing behaviors, both of which contribute to a healthier, more aware community of active bystanders.
This has been a challenging year, and at the heart of that challenge is the simple fact that this year is in no way what any of us expected it to be. We find ourselves feeling increasingly disconnected and uncertain because we have lost any sense of what we hoped this year would be.
With both gratitude and sadness, the Board of Directors of The Blue Bench today announced the resignation of Karmen Carter, executive director. Carter will support the organization through the end of 2020. During this time, a search for her successor will be conducted.
Together, we can make sure that young people continue to have access to impactful prevention programming and survivors of sexual assault continue to receive the care and support they need.
