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.
The Blue Bench, metro Denver’s only comprehensive sexual assault prevention and support center, today announced that Stacy Galbraith and Edna Hendershot will be the featured guests at its April 28, 2020 Changing the Conversation Luncheon. Galbraith and Hendershot, the true heroes who inspired the Colorado detectives depicted in the hit Netflix series Unbelievable, will take part in a conversation moderated by award winning journalist Chris Vanderveen.
More than 300 advocates, activists and supporters of The Blue Bench gathered Wednesday, Sept. 25 in Downtown Denver for the organization’s Changing the Conversation Luncheon. This annual event focuses on inspiring the community to take part in a dialogue around sexual assault.
Whether someone is found guilty or innocent in the criminal justice system does not reflect whether or not a survivor’s story is true. Believing survivors says nothing about a perpetrator’s innocence or guilt, but it says everything about how we view sexual assault. Believing a survivor can empower them to heal and end the stigma around sexual assault.
