Jennifer Garner is speaking out for victims of rape and sexual assault.
As this year’s honoree at The Rape Foundation’s Annual Brunch on Sunday, October 7. Jennifer Garner made her stance on sexual assault and rape culture in current society clear. “It is so evident that we need to change the attitudes and conditions.The culture that renders so many victims silent and alone with their trauma,” the Peppermint actress, 46, said in her remarks. “We must make a commitment as a community and as a country to ensure that there are always safe places for victims to turn to for help.”
She went on to praise the Foundation’s work. “This is one of the most important remedies for the silence that has surrounded these crimes for centuries. The Rape Treatment Center and Stuart House are beacons of hope in a time that calls us to seek out and move as one towards light.
The annual brunch raises money for The Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Stuart House. The branch of the Foundation that serves sexually abused children. In an Instagram photo Garner posted later that day with the Foundation’s President, Gail Abarbanel, she wrote: “At today’s Rape Treatment Center brunch, #GailAbarbanel said it perfectly, ‘This is not a political issue, this is not a partisan issue, this is a human issue.’ We can all agree that victims of rape and sexual abuse deserve to be treated with care and respect.
Her comments come ten days after Dr Christine Blasey testified. Kavanaugh. After an FBI probe, Kavanaugh was confirm by the Senate to the Supreme Court on Saturday. October 6, in one of the slimmest margins in the country’s history. The events caused many people, including celebrities, to reveal their sexual assaults.
