Janelle Monáe tells sexual assault survivors, ‘I believe you’
“Repeat after me. We see you. We hear you. We support you. We believe you.”
“It’s been a brutal week for a lot of us women — those who supported survivors, who’ve spoken out,” she said. “It was an especially hard week for survivors of sexual assault. I want to tell any survivor here and any survivor watching us that I hear you, I see you, and I believe you.”
Monáe then led the crowd in a call-and-response.
“Repeat after me,” she said. “We see you. We hear you. We support you. We believe you.”
