Support Survivors

BeLEAF Survivors is “branching out.”

As an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we are establishing a reserve fund to give us a firm foundation. Given our importance to the Racine community, we are asking the community’s help to make our nonprofit launch with financial security.

You can’t take away what happened,
But you can give comfort to survivors in times of crisis.

You can’t clear their path,
But you can assure no survivor needs to walk it alone.

You can’t make their pain go away,
But you can make sure no survivor has to pay to heal from their assault.

You can’t reach everyone,
But you can change the way Racine thinks about and responds to sexual violence.
