Each year, we host three signature events: Advocacy Day; our Annual Conference; and our fundraiser, Shine the Light. We welcome all to attend these events, including non-members.
Since 2013, OAESV's Annual Advocacy Day to End Sexual Violence has provided advocates, survivors, and interested members of the public with the opportunity to express the importance of sexual violence advocacy and prevention to members of the Ohio Legislature. The one-on-one meetings with lawmakers provide invaluable opportunities for rape crisis professionals to share insight on pending legislation and make informed requests for funding increases. It is simply the best opportunity to have our voices heard in the place where laws are made!
This signature fundraising event celebrates the work that OAESV and our partners across Ohio do together toward realizing our shared vision of a Ohio free from sexual violence. This year, we invite you to embrace your voice by supporting our work to support survivors and prevent sexual violence!
