Rashad Corey’s innovative idea to help the hurting victims of sexual abuse stems from his own experience behind being sexually abused as a teenager by his former clergy. “After almost 10 years of being a survivor of sexual abuse Corey believes it’s time to speak UP, and speak out to help others understand that they too, can SURVIVE.
For this years Campaign
Corey has teamed up with Marquis Adele his business companion (both survivors of sexual abuse) to ensure that the lives of the victims of sexual abuse can be heard through this movement.
I Stand 4 Awareness is more than a Tee shirt line but it’s the beginning of a Organization Founded by Rashad Corey to help rehabilitate youth and young adults in the Baltimore surrounding areas that have been victimized by sexual abuse.
