We Are PAR: Celebrating 45 Years of Survivor Support

People Against Rape has been serving the Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley County community for 45 years!

Please join us in celebrating this incredible milestone at our anniversary event with an evening of live music, an open bar and heavy hors d'oeuvres as we recognize our partners and supporters, invite the community to join our cause and gather in support of PAR's dedication to survivors and their loved ones.
