Star empowers all to tell their stories

Those who experience sexual assault are silenced far too often.

The Northern Star wants to give them a voice. As April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the Northern Star Editorial Board is inviting members of the community who have faced sexual assault to share their stories and struggles in letters.

Anyone may participate. There is no word limit. If the writers choose, letters may be published anonymously to avoid people being revictimized by having their name revealed.

Letters will be published in the Perspective section of the newspaper, where the community has always made its voice heard through letters to the editor.

If you wish to participate, email with questions, comments and, if you are so inclined, your story.
