September 2017 marked the third year that SACE staff and volunteers eagerly participated in the province-wide #IBelieveYou campaign, created and organized by the Association of Alberta Sexual Assault Services (AASAS). The campaign was created to increase awareness of the best way to respond to someone who discloses an experience of sexual assault: I believe you.

This year's #IBelieveYou theme, Add Your Voice, called on Albertans to share words of support for people impacted by sexual trauma; whether it was through messages on the graffiti walls or posts through social media, we are proud of Edmontonians' contributions to spreading the #IBelieveYou message.

Several Edmonton postsecondary institutions hosted SACE booths for the campaign, including Concordia University of Edmonton, The King's University, MacEwan University, NAIT, and Norquest College. We are grateful for these institutions and their dedication to supporting the #IBelieveYou campaign!
