Freedom from Sexual Violence

Event: Start by Believing Day

Start by Believing Day

Start Planning!

On Wednesday, April 6th, 2016, Ending Violence Against Women International is declaring the first-ever, global Start by Believing Day.  Please join us in creating an international message of support for sexual assault survivors.

Why April 6th?

This day was chosen to build on the momentum that began in 2015, when Utah State Representative Angela Romero sponsored a resolution to declare the first Wednesday in April as the first-ever Start by Believing Day in Utah.  While many other communities and states have declared such a day, Utah’s resolution took the innovative step of establishing it has an annual event.  We can all join them in making this a global event.
