People who have experienced sexual harassment or sexual violence are invited to share their stories at a Twelve Mile Limit open mic

aims to raise awareness and demonstrate the prevalence of sexual misconduct. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in three women and one in six men will become victims of sexual violence during their lives.
People who wish to speak at the event can sign up online
. If you'd rather not speak but would like to share, there's an option to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "SHARE 11/7." Actors and volunteers will read those stories at the event.
The event begins at 7 p.m. Organizers suggest a donation of $10 to attend. Proceeds from the event benefit Sexual Trauma Awareness & Response
