Now that she's won her court case against a DJ who allegedly groped her in 2013, Taylor Swift is showing support for other survivors of sexual assault.
"I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this,” she wrote in a statement after the ruling. “My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.”
The Joyful Heart Foundation will be one of the lucky recipients.
“Taylor is aware of the Foundation and follows our work,” Maile M. Zambuto, CEO of the foundation, says. “Her team got in touch with me and we talked a lot about her commitment, all along throughout this ordeal, to wanting to be of service to survivors."
