Safer Warren County 5k
Ending violence in our communities begins with working together. That's why DASACC is proud to be working alongside the New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault. NJCASA is a coalition that joins people together in action for the common cause of ending sexual violence and supporting all those whose lives have been affected by it. NJCASA elevates the voice of survivors on the state level.
NJCASA is hosting a 5k walk/run on May 2nd in Asbury Park to raise much needed funds and awareness to support survivors of sexual assault as well as working very hard in prevention. DASACC will receive 50% of every dollar donated for this walk, which will be used to support our sexual assault programming. The other 50% will go to NJCASA, which will be used for elevating the voices of survivors through advocacy, prevention programming, policy change, and raising awareness - the number of sexual assaults throughout the state of NJ is staggering.
The reality is that 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men will be impacted by sexual violence. Every single dollar raised will increase awareness and bring us to a time when no one ever has to say #MeToo.
We need YOU, we need your voice.

Reasons Why I Walk...
"I walk to challenge the shame that is placed on survivors of sexual violence" - Olivia Hunter.
"I walk to honor the advocates who walked before me, beside me and after me, in solidarity with survivors statewide" - Kathryn Bednarsky.
"Violence, harassment, and assault impacts ALL PEOPLE regardless of gender, race, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, size, socioeconomic status, political opinion, and occupation. It's on US because it is US. Walking, running, jogging, donating, or all of the above is in our control. This is how we create actionable change. By being visible with the people who support survivors, we give a voice to survivors. We become the change. I am participating in the 5k to be visible for survivors in NJ and beyond" - Ali Longo.
"I want to make Warren County a Safer place so that children don't grow up to think violence is a normal part of relationships" - Monika Connell.
