"I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day. " -Vincent Van Gogh

The main downtown area of Garapan on the island of Saipan sits right on the edge of the western lagoon, a perfect spot
for enjoying the colors of a beautiful sunset or a moonlit night.

"In light of recent events, we at the Northern Marianas Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence feel it is necessary to talk again about what it means to truly support victims and survivors of sexual violence.

It starts with believing.

It continues with respect, which means we should all try to understand their trauma and support what they need for their own healing. Whether victims and survivors have reported or not about the sexual violence they endured, their trauma and pain are still valid. We need to recognize their dignity and agency by respecting that speaking out about their own stories and trauma should ultimately be their decision, not ours.

We also sincerely hope that recent developments mean that the current administration is moving forward with actively investigating and taking a deeper look into the allegations of sexual assault, abuse and harassment against current and former officials. We also hope that investigations remain trauma-informed and respectful of the dignity and rights of victims and survivors."

Again, we call on our community to come together in support victims and survivors in order to help create a CNMI that is free of sexual violence. That starts with us doing all of what we can to create a place where everyone is expected to treat each other with respect and where children are protected."
