These are one million people. One million people affected by unimaginable violence. One million people who didn't deserve to suffer. One million people who were changed, forever. But — most importantly — these are one million people who may not have had anywhere else to turn.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you… if you're a victim of sexual assault, thank you for having the courage to reach out for help. If you're a hotline volunteer at a crisis center, thank you for your persistent heart and the dedication of your time.
For the past 12 years, I have worked with RAINN in the fight against sexual assault. I've always encouraged victims to "pick up the phone" and call the hotline. As you know, it's so important that people in states of shock, isolation, depression or fear have a safe haven to turn to. As a result of RAINN's remarkable commitment — and the commitment of local crisis centers and volunteers around the country — the National Sexual Assault Hotline provides that place.
Congratulations to RAINN on this amazing accomplishment. Helping one million people is no small task. And on behalf of victims everywhere, I am eternally grateful.
Thanks to the work of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, these one million people did have a place to turn.
