Together this Giving Tuesday, we’ve got what it takes!

#GivingTuesday is December 2nd, a day to give to nonprofit organizations like OAESV. Together, we've got what it takes to support survivors and eliminate sexual violence in Ohio and beyond - but only if we act! OAESV needs your support to realize our shared vision of an Ohio free from sexual violence!


There are hundreds of thousands of survivors of sexual violence in Ohio, eleven of whom share their stories. If you are a survivor, know that we believe you, it’s not your fault, and help is available. Allow the stories of these brave survivors to remind you that you are also brave, you are stronger than you know, and healing is possible.

OAESV and the Ohio Domestic Violence Network are pleased to announce the See the Signs, Speak Out online training program for workplaces in effectively preventing and responding to sexual and domestic violence.
