18 months after her attack, we stand with the woman who was raped by Brock Turner, we stand up against rape culture, we stand with each other, we believe you. Turner, 20, was sentenced to six months in county jail for sexually assaulting the unconscious woman behind a dumpster on the Stanford campus after a fraternity party on January 18, 2015. Turner had faced a maximum 14 years in state prison, but Judge Aaron Persky sentenced him to six months, contending that a longer sentence would have “a severe impact on him.” The anonoymous survivor of the assault read her IMPACT STATEMENT dirctly to Turner. “You don’t know me, but you’ve been inside me, and that’s why we are here today,” she detailed the severe impact the assault had on her. Turner’s father stated it was a “steep price to pay for 20 minutes of action.” In response, we issue this call for participants.

We are sick of rape culture.

Here is the original impact statement.

Here is Brock Turner’s father’s letter.
