Stop Sexual Violence, support "I HAVE THE RIGHT: Project Envision", 3/19

Project Envision aims to tackle sexual violence in New York City by identifying and addressing community specific needs. They do this in collaboration with individuals, families, local businesses, and service providers. Their innovative campaign "I Have The Right..." has helped raise awareness about gender based violence. Their unique approach of grass-roots community action invites direct involvement.

To learn more, please visit their website. Then join us at their next meeting to get updated and to help strategize about helping them achieve their goals. Changing a culture that many women and girls experience as one of intimidation, violence or exploitation, requires that all men and women of conscience add their voice.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
