April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

In a recent video produced by 1in6, a national non-profit organization, 5 women were asked to read different accounts of sexual abuse or assault, all of which were true stories submitted by male survivors. The video touches on the issue of male sexual abuse and the lack of resources or voices for men and boys who have been sexually abused. If you were sexually abused, there is help. Our legal team at Montoya, Lucero & Pastor, P.A. is here to lend our support. We provide legal assistance for those who have been sexually abused. Whether you need help navigating the criminal justice system or would help investigating civil claims against the abuser and those institutions of trust who have a legal obligation to protect children, Montoya, Lucero & Pastor, PA is here to help.

About 1in6

Research shows that approximately 1 in every 6 men has experienced sexual abuse or sexual assault. Many male victims of sexual abuse have not shared their stories out of fear, shame, or simply because they don’t know how. The 1in6 foundation aims to expand the way in which the public views sexual assault victims, reminding us all that sexual abuse affects every race, gender, socio-economic background, and educational level. Survivors of sexual abuse often deal with difficult emotions as a result of the abuse, including shame, distrust, fear of intimacy, isolation, anger, addiction, and guilt. Videos like the one produced by 1in6 help break down stereotypes and raise awareness for all types of victims of sexual abuse.
