RESTORE Launches Sexual Assault Awareness Month Campaign

RESTORE, a PPCWNY program, is committed to empowering survivors of sexual violence through compassion, validation, and healing. Leading our community on education, advocacy, and social justice, RESTORE provides steadfast and confidential support to all survivors of sexual assault.

This month, RESTORE will be carrying out our annual sexual assault awareness campaign. Flag displays, including informational signage, will be visible throughout RESTORE’s five-county region. The 1,271 flags in each display represent the number of Americans who are sexually assaulted every day (one every 68 seconds). You can see our displays at the following locations:

  • University Avenue Planned Parenthood Health Center, Rochester, Monroe County
  • Brighton Planned Parenthood Health Center, Monroe County
  • Genesee County Courthouse, Batavia, Genesee County
  • Livingston County Courthouse, Geneseo, Livingston County
  • Pullman Memorial Universalist Church, Albion, Orleans County
  • Wyoming County Government Center, Warsaw, Wyoming County
  • Flags will also be displayed on nine college campuses for one week each during the month of April

Follow RESTORE on Social Media

See the campaign all month long (and beyond) @RESTOREsas on Facebook and Instagram. We will be sharing our own content as well as spotlighting advocacy resources for survivors and loved ones.

Denim Day

Wear denim on Wednesday, April 26! Denim Day is an international day to raise awareness that sexual violence is never about what a survivor is wearing. Learn more at www.DenimDay.org.

Check Out Scratch Bakeshop

If you’re in Rochester, check out Scratch Bakeshop's Cake of the Month. Scratch is partnering with RESTORE to raise money and awareness for sexual assault victims. All proceeds from the purchase of this cake and a portion of the proceeds from the purchase of all SAAM-themed baked goods will go to RESTORE.

Donate Items to RESTORE

RESTORE is currently seeking: small/medium-sized cosmetic bags, underwear and bras, journals, sketchbooks, coloring books, crayons, and coloring pencils. All donation items must be new or unused. To make arrangements to drop off your donation, please contact RESTORE or visit our Amazon wish list to purchase some much-appreciated wish list items.

 Volunteer with RESTORE

The next round of RESTORE volunteer advocate training will kick off later this year. Advocates help empower survivors of sexual violence through compassion, validation, and healing, and serve as education, advocacy, and social justice leaders across Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, and Wyoming counties. RESTORE Advocates answer hotline and hospital calls on evenings and weekends. They provide emotional support, discuss options available with the client, offer accompaniment to hospitals and with law enforcement, and provide support and information to significant others.

All applicants will be screened and must complete a 40-hour training. To get started, download the volunteer advocate application and email to [email protected].

Letters of Hope

Letters of Hope is a virtual place to share letters of support, hope, encouragement, and solidarity with survivors of sexual violence. Submissions can be emailed to [email protected] and will be posted to the gallery.
