Tonight’s Degrassi episode dealt with a very serious topic. Sexual assault happens to all kinds of people. It is important not to assign blame to the victim and to be aware of what sexual assault is.
If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, please remember it’s never too late to get help. Talk to someone you trust or reach out to these fantastic resources:
• In the US: RAINN 1-800-656-HOPE. Website: www.rainn.org @rainn01
• In Canada: Kids Help Phone 1-800-668-6868. Website: www.kidshelpphone.ca@KidsHelpPhone
Know that you’re not alone. Help is available so please talk to someone.
Tonight’s one hour episode of Degrassi addresses a very serious subject. As Ana said, “These were the most intense episodes I’ve ever filmed. I had to go places in acting that I never thought imaginable.”
