Organized by: Chelsea Mandes

Hi everyone. I am currently a master's of social work candidate, and I plan to apply to PhD and law programs for admission in the 2017-2018 school year. My focus is sexual assault research and prevention, both in the US and globally. As a survivor of sexual assaulting my undergraduate library, this research is more than a career; it is why I wake up in the morning. So why do I need your help? As a full time student with a lower middle class family, I don't have the resources to visit universities and meet potential advisors. I want to make sure that the school I go to is a great fit, and that the faculty is supportive of this type of research as not all universities are. Populations I would like to research in terms of sexual violence include the economically disadvantaged, college students, trans women, and revictimized women. Please help and donate what you can; I realize in these times that may not be much, but I have survived child abuse, rape, a suicide attempt and I want to give back for all people who helped me along the way. Please help me raise awareness and find interventions for sexual assault. Thank you for your time.
