Resources during COVID-19 How is COVID-19 affecting victims of interpersonal violence? How is COVID-19 affecting Susan B. Anthony Project? How can you help? DOWNLOAD OUR RESOURCE GUIDE Susan B. Anthony Project is an amazing organization that saved my son’s and my life from  a very abusive man. They gave us our lives back! As a man, it was hard for me to admit that I was a victim of sexual assault. My Susan B. Anthony Project counselor believed me and helped me open up. I found out that other men are also victims. I felt such a sense of relief. In my support group, I met other women who were going through exactly what I was going through. The experience saved my life.
