I was raped at gunpoint when I was 16. I had been dating him and was too afraid to report it for a long time. He told me his life would be over if I called the police on him. I was too afraid.

Now, thanks to Everytown and the network of survivors, I have made a police report, and he is being investigated. It feels empowering to know that I am taking action to protect myself and other girls he might try to hurt.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
