Surviving R. Kelly & Beyond: Sexual Assault in the African American Community

February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

“Surviving R. Kelly” & Beyond: Sexual Assault in the African American Community

Please RSVP at https://clevelandrapecrisis.org/cleveland-rape-crisis-center-host-surviving-r-kelly-beyond-community-event/

In the docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, survivors bravely came forward to share their experiences with the world. Survivors of rape and sexual abuse are speaking out about being preyed upon, groomed, victimized and even blamed for their victimization, even when others knew what was taking place. All too often, survivors of color, specifically Black women, are overlooked, discounted, or simply not believed.

Join us for a much-needed conversation regarding sexual violence in our community and how we can change the narrative.
