The Illuminate Austin walk is meant to shed light on the dark subject of domestic and sexual violence. SAFE Austin has been an intrugal part the Austin community for over 40 years and their mission is to end sexual assault and exploitation, child abuse and domestic violence through prevention, intervention and advocacy for change.
I started volunteering for SAFE in the summer of 2015 and it has been an educating, liberating, and empowering experience. In the wake of tragedy there is community and SAFE is that community for so many people.
Help SAFE stop abuse for everyone and donate today to a cause that creates social programs, shelter, educational opportunities, health care, and so much more to survivors in need.
