Public Tribunal: Building the Movement to Fight Rape and Sexual Assault featuring Aarefah Mosavi

“Justice does exist. Survivors across the world have asked where it is. I say, it’s in the palm of your hands! Those of us who have endured such atrocities are not the weak; those rapists are the failures of society. The rapists are the predators, and such people should pay dearly for what they have chosen to do!” -Aarefah Mosavi

*All are welcome and encouraged to speak*
