On June 22, a student-run project called Current Solutions published a series of photos of women representing victim-blaming statements like those made by Brock Turner and his father in court.
Current Solutions is a platform dedicated to spreading awareness about sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and gender-based violence. It’s a place for people to safely share their stories, to enter the conversation and safely speak out about these widespread and often taboo issues in a real, unfiltered way.
Launched just over a month ago, Current Solutions has gotten a great response from the community, and their “Dear Brock Turner” Artist Feature garnered even more attention.
Co-Founder of Current Solutions, Maxwell Fong, explained
Most people know the statistic one in four women are assaulted during their college career, but what most people don’t realize is that this happens to one in four women they know. By putting faces to these stories, we’re showing the world that people are not afraid to speak out. People who have shared their stories have come back and told us about the healing that sharing has given them. Many of these survivors are coming out for the first time, and we are honored that they have chosen our platform to share on. We’re trying to provide a safe place for people to share,”

We are passionate about raising awareness because these issues are never going to go away on their own. We need people to realize that they are prevalent and worth solving; and we want to come up with tangible solutions.”
Hannah Joslin, Public Relations & Branding Director.
Not only have we gotten people wanting to share their stories, but we have also gotten a major response from people in the community telling us that they love the stories we are sharing to help spread awareness, asking how they can help and get involved. People have expressed that they too believe this is an issue worth talking about.”
