What To Do After A Sexual Assault...
People should not hurt themselves or other people.
No one has the right to use someone else's body for pleasure if the person does not want them to do it.
It is your body and you decide what happens to it.
It is important that you tell someone.
It is OK to tell, even if someone gets mad at you.
Remember, you own your own body. You have a right to not be touched.
Sometimes people are tricked...it is not your fault!
Sometimes it is hard to say no to adults or to someone you know. It is OK to say no, even if they get mad.
It hurts your feelings if someone lies to your or tricks you...but it is against the law for someone to hurt you or even touch your body... so tell someone you trust.
There is someone you can talk to...call the Community Crisis Center at (847) 697-2380.
