Families do not have to sit idly by while gang rape, murder, sexual assault and kidnapping occur right here in our Charlottesville community.
Sex is a beautiful act between consensual adults. When one human being forces another human being into a sexual act, he or she is not having sex but committing a violent crime. Both victims and perpetrators lose themselves in fearful or violent thinking – both suffering from the loss of their humanity.
Saturday, Nov 22, 1:00 – 2:00 pm at UVA’s Madison Bowl
No matter your crimes, no matter your punishment, no matter what you tell yourself in the quiet moments of the night – you are a child of god and are worth a life.
Mothers Unite Against Sexual Violence is a non-denominational spiritual movement based on the common humanity of all human beings, based on the spiritual nature of our existence.
Join me for our first meeting on Saturday, November 22nd 1 – 2 pm. We will meet at UVa. We will bring lunch, friends, family, blankets, and songs – our daughters and sons. We will hold vigil together for all the silent human beings who were raped and all the silent human beings who have committed horrific acts of moral injury against themselves and another.
Phi Kappa Psi, named in this article, is at 159 Madison Lane. We will meet in Madison Bowl, the open green, just in front of the fraternity.
By inviting every mother we know and arranging care for our children if needed, we will let the students of UVA know that they are not alone. The most powerful message we could send is one of love, forgiveness and presence – all together.
We need mothers and fathers, from every corner of Charlottesville and the surrounding counties, to send a strong message to UVA. We need reporters, we need signage, we need every family member who can stand with us to come. We must not let this problem go quietly.
Not one more.
Share this, tell everyone, change your plans, tell people where you are going and why – we will not be the silent bystanders to these crimes anymore.
