WHO ARE WE?
Threads of Compassion is a group of people looking to offer comfort and support to survivors of sexual assault or abuse.
Anyone whose life has been affected by sexual assault or abuse is welcome to knit or crochet a scarf for Threads of Compassion, to be given anonymously to a survivor of sexual violence.
While the majority of scarves are created by survivors, friends or family of survivors, anyone who wishes to take a stand against sexual violence may participate as well. Each scarf is a gesture of love, comfort and support to those suffering through the unspeakable pain of sexual assault or abuse.
We wish to break through the silence and shame that surround rape and sexual abuse and let survivors know that they don’t have to bear this pain alone.
