This morning, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee she is “100 percent sure” sure that Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her. In his testimony, Kavanaugh is angrily denying the accusations. Because today’s historic testimony may re-traumatize those who have been assaulted, The Beacon is posting a list of helpful resources. It’s never too late to ask for help.
