Rape is Rape in any language

*Trigger Warning*

Coventry City Council and Coventry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (CRASAC), supported by West Midlands Police are launching a ground-breaking project in Coventry; focusing on survivor’s needs and the education of others in order to understand the trauma that rape and sexual abuse inflicts on victims.

The project includes the development of a DVD called ‘Rape is Rape in any language’.

The first showing will take place at the launch  on :

Thursday 7th November

Theatre Absolute Shop Front

38, City Arcade

Coventry

CV1 3HW.

Two sessions are being held: 2.30pm – 4.00pm or 6.00pm – 7.30pm.

Councillor Ann Lucas, Leader of Coventry City Council and Chair of Coventry Sexual Violence and Exploitation Strategic Partnership, will formally welcome everyone to the event.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear a survivor’s story.  Actors who performed in the DVD will also be explaining why they got involved.

The campaign has been supported by Coventry Bears Rugby League Team.  One of their players who appeared in the film will also be present and will explain why he personally got involved and why the team believe it is important to support the campaign.

To book your place, email:  Alison.quigley@coventry.gov.uk with your preferred session.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
