Stand Up, Speak Out Against Sexual Abuse!


December 6, 2017



HOT has the utmost respect for those who have come forward to stand up and speak out against their sexual abusers. 

Time named these “Silence Breakers” 2017’s “Person of the Year.”  As said by Time’s editor-in-chief, “This is the fastest moving social change we’ve seen in decades, and it began by individual acts of courage by women, and some men, too, who came forward.”

Instances of sexual abuse, harassment and misconduct don’t just happen in Hollywood and politics.  It happens every day here in the Pacific Northwest to a wide range of people.  If you’re a victim, use your voice.  Stand up and speak out!
