At Middle Church, we know that 7 out of ten people who are raped or assaulted know the perpetrator. As part of the #MeToo, #TimesUp and #BelieveSurvivors movements, Middle Church joined the #Women'sMarch to protest in Washington DC and New York City during the Kavanaugh hearings. At the church, we hosted a series of small group gatherings for female and male members of our community to talk about their own experiences and be held in a space of love. Our clergy and staff are womanists and feminists who believe in the strength of women's voices. If you are anyone you know has been sexually assaulted, please reach out to the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE (4673) or chat online at online.rainn.org.
