Stop it ASAP (Awareness of Sexual Assault Project) is an empowerment project between Avalon and YWCA Halifax’s Finding Leadership in Youth Women program and other community groups.
The program offers interactive activities to girls and young women on different themes, myths, and questions around sexual assault. A toolkit is available to encourage youth to get involved!
Comments from the youth:
“I would tell a friend about sexual assault…”
- It isn’t something to hide
- It isn’t your fault
- Tell someone you can trust
- one-quarter of girls younger than 16 years old are sexually assaulted
The Stop It ASAP Toolkit includes:
- Buttons (pictured above)
- Stop it ASAP draw string bags
- A ‘zine for girls about sexualized violence
