BENEFITING: RAPE ADVOCACY COUNSELING & EDUCATION SERVICES
Gianna Bendinelli wrote -RACES is a free service to UIUC students who have been victims of sexual assault, their services include a crisis hotline, medical advocacy, legal advocacy, free counseling for victims/survivors and their loved ones as well as public education. Unfortunately, because of the budget impasse in Illinois, RACES has been forced to suspend parts of their services. This service is extremely comforting to those who are victims of sexual assault and we need to do whatever we can to help keep these services available to those in the Champaign-Urbana area. Please help our team in raising money to keep our local rape-crisis center funded and allow them to continue helping, educating and making a difference in people's lives everyday!
