A national leader in the movement to shatter the silence surrounding sexual violence.
Angela’s efforts have been profiled by CNN, The Today Show, TIME Magazine, The Montel Williams Show, The John Walsh Show, CosmoGirl, Girl’s Life magazine and in newspapers nationwide.
At the age of 17, Angela was abducted at knife point outside a suburban Chicago shopping mall. She was assaulted by a repeat sex-offender on parole for murder—and was eventually released by her attacker. Bruised and disoriented, she then suffered at the hands of authorities who—instead of helping her—subjected her to scrutiny, blame and additional victimization. The anguish of her abduction was immediately magnified by anger and a strong sense of injustice at her treatment by authorities.
Angela continued her activism on the issues of sexual violence prevention as she entered college. There, she perceived a lack of activism on the issues. She then founded the organization, PAVE: Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment, to create education and action surrounding the issues of sexual violence. The organization was immediately recognized for its inclusiveness to all individuals and their experiences. Through PAVE, Angela has trained students (including athletes, fraternities and sororities) in sexual assault prevention, produced a documentary, entitled Transition to Survivor, and founded Men Opposing Sexual Assault, a student group that highlights the importance of men in the anti-sexual assault movement.
