Molly Anne's compelling life story has endeared her and her family to Auburn. She chose to advocate for on-campus counseling and other resources for Auburn students, women in particular.  Watch the video below for Molly Anne's story.

Molly Anne writes,  "Women’s resources, which promote education, prevention, and support for victims of sexual assault, provide women and children an alternative that is drenched in life and restoration. My birth mother experienced this firsthand. Due to an adoption and counseling agency, Lifeline Children’s Services, she was given the education and support to let light shine through her very dark situation. As a result, I stand before you today, not only a part of a loving family, but a part of the Auburn Family."

Molly Anne Dutton's Platform for Miss Homecoming 2013

Women’s resources, which promote education, prevention, and support for victims of sexual assault, provide women and children an alternative that is drenched in life and restoration. My birth mother experienced this firsthand. Due to an adoption and counseling agency, Lifeline Children’s Services, she was given the education and support to let light shine through her very dark situation. As a result, I stand before you today, not only a part of a loving family, but a part of the Auburn Family.

Through this campaign, I hope to bring women closer to hope and life. If an Auburn woman ever finds herself in such a situation, I hope that this will not only bring to light the resources that are available to her, but that she will welcome them. When the glory and power of light is shone, the importance of life is radiated. The hope found in these resources penetrates the lives of women who have even been through trials and tribulations. It gives them something solid to stand upon. Lifeline Adoption Agency, Safe Harbor, and Women’s Hope all show us ways to prevent crisis as well as counseling for ones who are being carried out of such a trying time. I have personally received that hope, light, and truth and I hope to light up the life of another.

This platform is to bring hope to the hopeless and a solution to the broken. Whether Auburn sees it or not, every two minutes, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. This darkness is creeping into our homes and crippling our loved ones. One out of six women is victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime.What does that look like at Auburn? Two thousand and twenty five of our women. This is our best friend, our daughter, our moms-or even ourselves.
