Description

Thanks for checking out the second season of Let the Truth Talk. When dismantling the myths around sexual violence, the facts should always come first. This season your hosts Tara and Tandia will be talking about some common misconceptions around sexual violence in our society. These misconceptions can prevent victims from speaking out, seeking help and holding perpetrators responsible for the assault.  Getting the facts and dismantling these myths are an important step in ending sexual violence, and finding ways to best support survivors of sexual violence. 

Truth #3 - Most victims are sexually assaulted by someone they know.  In more than 80% of sexual assaults, the perpetrator is someone the victim knows. 

The Harmony Project’s diverse stakeholders through expertise and experience are working together to end sexualized violence in the Bow Valley.  The Harmony Project is funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services on behalf of the Government of Alberta.
