I came to SARC as a volunteer in 2009. At the time, I didn’t know that this was going to be my life’s work. It didn’t take long for SARC to feel like home and for it to be clear that this is where I belong. In reference to activist and author Ana Clarissa Rojas Durazo, one of the things that I value most about being an advocate is having the opportunity to “stand in solidarity with a sister going through it in the middle of the night.” Not just at night of course, but in any moment that support is needed. And not just for my sisters, but for all of the members of our community that are affected by sexual violence. My approach to advocacy is grounded in how sexual violence intersects with race, class, sexual orientation, ability, gender identity, nationality, age and incarceration.
