From The Desk of The Executive Director - On Collaboration

We hope you enjoy this new monthly feature from our Executive Director, Ginny Waller. Ginny will focus each month on a component of how nonprofit best practices really play out in STSM's strategic work to serve survivors of sexual violence and to educate our community to identify and prevent sexual violence. As always, let us know what you think! This first piece in the series focuses on collaboration.

Victim Blaming: India's Daughter and Closer to Home

Vickie Belcher is a sophomore Economics and Anthropology major at the University of South Carolina who has volunteered with STSM since September. Her favorite part about volunteering with STSM is seeing how the agency works to directly help survivors and make a difference in the greater Columbia area through educational outreach.
