    • 5:00 PM
    • Nantucket Dreamland Theater, 17 South Water St., Nantucket, MA

    A Safe Place will present a FREE screening of I AM EVIDENCE, an HBO film that sheds light on the reasons behind the alarming number of untested rape kits in the United States.

    I AM EVIDENCE tells the story of four survivors whose rape kits went untested for years, following them as they navigate their way through the criminal justice system and learn that, so often, the system is broken.  This award winning film was a featured documentary at the 2017 Nantucket Film Festival.

    The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Nantucketers who service and support survivors of sexual violence on our island.

    • Build skills for safely acting to challenge inappropriate sexual and violent behaviors

    Sustaining Yourself through the Holidays: A Self-Care Workshop

    December 3, 2018, 6:30–8:30 p.m.

    The holidays can be a challenging time of year for anyone, and sometimes especially for survivors of sexual violence. Busyness, travel, interrupted routines, being around family (or not), being separated from regular support systems; it can all add up. In the midst of all this, you—survivors, significant others, and advocates—may find it challenging to take care of yourself.

    So let’s take a minute (or a couple hours) to nourish ourselves! This self-care workshop is an opportunity to meet other survivors and community members involved in the movement to end sexual violence and support survivors—while also learning skills to be your best self. A few members of our Survivors Speakers Bureau will join us to share their stories and thoughts about self-care.  We’ll also practice some self-care through a crafting activity!

    This event requires an RSVP  (scroll to the bottom of the page).
