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.

February is Black History Month. A perfect opportunity to honor and recognize Black Americans who have acted as leaders, role models, and heroes in our communities. Through out history, Black Americans have played a major role in the movement to end sexual assault. This month, we invite you to meet just some of the trailblazers who have shaped the movement, beginning as early as 1813.
