We are RISE [Rape Incest & Suicide Education]. Our
mission is to raise awareness about these tragic epidemics, and to help the people who are going through them. These are heartbreakingly
frequent occurances, stealing the pride, self-esteem, sanity, life and soul of thousands every year. Victims and survivors
of these three epidemics may be young or old, male or female, and of any social class or location.
Every 2 minutes, someone in America reports a rape.
That's just in America, and that's just reported cases. SIXTY PERCENT of rapes are not reported. Those rapists never spend
a day in jail. Only SIX PERCENT ever will. If a rape IS reported, there is only a FIFTY PERCENT chance of arrest. Fifteen
of sixteen rapists walk free... Rape is a crime, whether the person committing it is a stranger, a date, an acquaintance,
or a family member. People who have been raped need care, comfort, and a way to heal.
National Sexual Assault Hotline: 1-800-656-HOPE
ONE IN THREE females are sexually
abused by the time they turn eighteen. In 1995, over 126,000 CHILDRREN were victims of sexual abuse. SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT
of those children were girls, THIRTY PERCENT of them between the ages of FOUR and SEVEN. EVERY 10 SECONDS a child is reported
being abused, molested, or KILLED. Many of these victims are EIGHT years old or YOUNGER. An estimated FIFTY PERCENT of child
sexual offenders are the parents.
National Child Abuse
In America alone, a woman takes her own life EVERY NINETY MINUTES. An attempt at suicide
is estimated to be made ONCE EVERY MINUTE. There are four male suicides for every female suicide, but twice as many females
as males attempt suicide. Every day, approximately EIGHTY Americans take their own life, and 1,500 more attempt to do so.
Among young people aged 10-14 years, the suicide rate has DOUBLED in the last two decades.
