Survivors come from all backgrounds regardless of class status, race, ethnicity, ability, gender identity, or spiritual, religious, or faith based identities. We know that dating/intimate partner and sexual violence impacts all of us, whether we have experienced harm directly or someone we know has. PCC has a shared commitment to provide support to our peers and to call an end to this violence.
