BENEFITING: SPEAKING OUT ABOUT RAPE INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2012
The FBI categorizes rape as the second most violent crime a person can experience, second only to murder. To put it another way, it’s the most violent and traumatic crime any victim lives to remember. Every two minutes,
another American is sexually assaulted. It is the most under-reported of all crimes in the United States.
Operation Freefall is the only event of its kind to increase awareness of sexual violence. The event is held
simultaneously across the country the last Saturday of each April. In the past ten years Operation Freefall has raised over $1,000,000 to:
Enhance local support and outreach services for survivors of sexual violence.
Provide recovery, risk-reduction, and prosecution information to tens of millions of people, including many in your local community, each year.
Help victims of sexual violence through the healing process.
Educate lawmakers, police officers, students, the public, and the media about sexual assault.
