Support Our Survivor Wellness Program

Donate to our Survivor Wellness Program Fundraiser all throughout April!

Safer has recently re-positioned an existing Advocate role to serve as a Survivor Wellness Coordinator. This role was intentionally designed to work with survivors in developing communities of care, healing, and connection with others who have had similar experiences. There is no single path to healing, and the survivor wellness program seeks to create spaces for survivors of all identities and lived experiences. While we have the position created, what our program lacks is sustainable funding to offer speakers, instructors or experts in the field. To help us fully realize this vision, donations made to support survivor wellness programming will directly impact the long-term healing, growth and success of survivors at Cal Poly. 

Survivor Wellness Programming We Hope to Provide with New Funding

  • Yoga class for survivors 
  • Therapy dogs 
  • Wellness Specialist 
  • Classes in various healing modalities: as reiki, meditation, acupuncture, trauma-informed drumming, self-care, art 
  • Workshops exploring goals and dreams beyond the trauma they have experienced 
  • Grounding/regulation tools 
  • Monthly Craft Circles 
  • Specialized Support Groups for Survivors 

Donate to Safer’s Survivor Wellness Program Today!

History of Sexual Assault Action Month

"Even before its official declaration, Sexual Assault Awareness Month was about both awareness and prevention of sexual assault, harassment, and abuse. Looking at the history of the movement to end sexual violence, it’s clear why: It’s impossible to prevent an issue no one knows about, and it’s difficult to make people aware of a problem without providing a solution. The two work in tandem, and they always have. From the civil rights movement to the founding of the first rape crisis centers to national legislation and beyond, the roots of SAAM run deep.” (NSVRC)

If you want to read more about the roots of the movement, visit the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s website.  

In 2021, Safer transitioned from the "Awareness Months" framing to "Action Months," promoting our collective responsibility to move beyond just awareness - and to do something. Learn how you can join the movement here.
