Manheim woman is featured speaker at Take Back the Night
Manheim native, advocate and rape survivor Jennifer Shipe will share her story of courage and hope in healing from sexual assault at Take Back the Night on April 10 at 7:30 p.m. at YWCA Lancaster, 110 N. Lime St. The event is one of the many planned in April for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Shipe is the founder and chairperson for RAINN ‘EM IN, a unique fundraising effort to support RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network). Her mission has been simple: make the topic of sexual violence more approachable to affect change. With races in Seattle, Lancaster/Philly and Washington DC, over $50,000 has been raised to support RAINN.
Shipe hopes her story of survival and strength will inspire others who are suffering from the wounds of abuse. Take Back the Night invites the community, including survivors, to share their stories of courage and struggle through prose, poetry, music or just being present.
