Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service with HRC Utah

MLK_Day_Of_Service_2018_Graphic.png

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, volunteers from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) of Utah spent nearly 10 hours reorganizing and cleaning the Rape Recovery Center offices. The Rape Recovery Center was thrilled to partner with HRC Utah for this inspiring project. These incredible individuals reflect the spirit of service that Dr. King lived his life by.

We recognize that Dr. King's fight for racial justice is inherently connected to our mission to end sexual violence; in order to address sexual violence we must root out all forms of injustice and oppression. The intersection of sexual violence and racism is clear when we examine the statistics and recognize the increased risk that communities of color face for experiencing sexual violence. For more about the dangerous intersections of racism and sexual violence, check out this article from the organization INCITE!. 

On behalf of all of us at the Rape Recovery Center, we wish to thank HRC Utah and the incredible volunteers that dedicated their time and efforts to help advance our mission of empowering survivors and ending sexual violence. In partcular, thank you to:
