Rider's Against Domestic Abuse & Rape- R.A.D.A.R.
Some may ask why I am so adamant about founding an organization of this nature when there are a lot of groups already pushing for this cause. Yes, there are groups that cater to these problems but enough is not being done. I believe the more we can get people to be aware of abuse and rape the better off the future victims will be. We can all make a difference.1 in 4 women and 1 in 12 men are abused in the United States alone. Fifty Percent of protection orders are violated so this means that 50% of victims are abused multiple times. Every 2 minutes someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. 97% of rapists will never spend a day in jail. The numbers are staggering but people worry more about protecting their assets than protecting victims. With these numbers I would venture to say that someone knows someone who has been abused, raped or both, yet it continues to happen as people stand idly by.
