A note from Luis from B.I.T….
Shorty is a very special young lady who chose to stand up, take charge, and fight against her rapist! Her goal was simple….to make sure this animal NEVER rapes anyone again! We were able to show Shorty and her family that she was not alone and that we would be there with her thru the entire judicial process…and beyond. A special thank you to Delaney Henderson Mike Simpfenderfer, a director at PAVE (Promoting Awareness Victim Empowerment) and B.A.C.A. (Bikers Against Child Abuse) for their continued dedication, support, and guidance in helping Shorty get her voice heard and allowing her to roar like a lion! I’m so proud of you Shorty!!!

Q&A and Town Hall Discussion


Please sign the following petition to send a strong message to Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU). They have an obligation to keep its students safe from professors who sexually harass, so why are they keeping Professor David Chevan on staff? The administration needs to take more corrective and protective action!


“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

Donate to Landen Gambill: http://www.gofundme.com/3ivgmg

When rape survivor Landen Gambill decided to report her rape to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, she expected to be protected and treated fairly. After the University encouraged Landen to file a complaint in the University’s student-run Honor System, whose representative wrongly told Landen that she could not go to the police and file an Honor Court complaint at the same time, Landen was put through a mishandled, traumatic Honor Court trial in which she was blamed for being raped, told that women must leave their abusers the first time they are raped in order for the rape to be legitimate, and told not to show emotion during the trial because it was “distracting”—even though her rapist was allowed to cry. Landen’s abuser was found not guilty of sexual invasion and guilty of sexual harassment; however, that did not stop the University from placing her abuser in a residence hall in close proximity to Landen’s, despite her no-contact order against him. When Landen decided to join four other women from UNC in a Title IX Complaint with the Office of Civil Rights at the US Department of Education, the last thing she expected was for the University to charge her with an Honor Code violation for “intimidating” and “creating a disparaging environment” for her abuser—with the threat of expulsion as a result. Due to the dedicated advocacy of Clay Turner, Landen’s attorney, the Honor Court charge was dropped in June 2013 and the Office of Civil Rights has launched an investigation into the retaliation complaint. Now Landen needs your help paying for legal fees in order to complete the pursuit of justice for herself and survivors of sexual violence at colleges across the country.
