Editor’s note:  Our colleagues at the Sexual Assault Resource Agency are among the most important of our partners in the Charlottesville community. Staff and students from the Women’s Center recently attended the annual award event at which SARA recognizes leaders in confronting sexual violence in our community. Lisa Speidel, Assistant Professor of Women, Gender and Sexuality at UVA and a SARA board member, delivered these remarks and was generous enough to allow us to share them with you here.
