Adi has been volunteering with The Rape Crisis Center since September of 2015. Adi has been energetic and engaged with the RCC since she began volunteer training. She not only goes out to the hospital and provides advocacy services to survivors getting their sexual assault forensic examinations, she also does outreach events.
Adi has given up her personal time in the morning before work, in the evenings after work, at lunch during work, and some of her weekends to come sit at an outreach table giving information to community members about The Rape Crisis Center. She is committed to letting this community know we exist and what services we provide. I am so impressed with her energy and enthusiasm for this cause.
At an outreach event recently, someone was being confrontational about rape and what we do at the RCC. Adi handled it so calmly saying “I think The Rape Crisis Center promotes equality and consent”. She didn’t give any more space for that person to insult or berate us. I was struck by her composure that day. Thank you Adi for giving up so much of your time to this agency, to survivors, and to the cause of ending sexual violence. We appreciate you!
