Sexual Violence Advocacy and Education

Survivor Advocacy Services  Available

“…Sexual assault isn’t just an issue involving a crime committed by a perpetrator against a victim, but one in which the rest of us also have a role to play. We are committed to creating an environment - be it a dorm room, a party, a bar or club, or the greater college campus - where sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported”.

“It’s on Us” campaign The White House Office of the Press Secretary
