Standing Silent Witness
April 24, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
In conjunction with Sexual Assault Awareness Month, ZCenter staff, volunteers, and community members will stand silently at 9 am for one hour on the steps of the Lake County Courthouse (18 N County St. Waukegan, IL) wearing t-shirts bearing personal stories of sexual assault and abuse – stories that too often are invisible and unacknowledged. T-shirts may also include relevant statistics, facts, or artwork. By standing in solidarity with survivors, silent protesters bear witness to rape survivors’ unheard experiences. Participants are also encouraged to wear teal and purple, the colors of sexual assault awareness.
