Violent crime rises with one exception

Nationally violent crime is rising according to the FBI with one exception, rape. Reports indicate rape is showing a decline. Now this data remains heavily disputed as well as celebrated depending on where you stand. From where I sit, I am just glad we are talking about it. Regardless of trends rape is so devastating when it occurs, even one is too many.
The good news?
Many times it is preventable. Start a dialogue with your campus police, local police, Women's Centers and motivated peers to impact your community and therefore making this a better world to live in.
You can change the world.

Wishing you a safe and empowered day.
