Are you a victim of sexual assault?

Are you a victim of rape or sexual assault?Sexual assault is NOT about lust and desire; it’s a violent crime of POWER, CONTROL, and DOMINANCE.

You did nothing to cause the abuse. It doesn’t matter:

  • What you were wearing
  • What you were doing
  • What you said
  • If you were drinking
  • If you are their friend or partner

Abuse can occur any time, without warning and there is nothing you could have done to stop it.


What to do if you are a victim

  • Get to a safe place and call 911.
  • Seek medical attention, even if you think you are not injured. You may have injuries that you cannot see. Try to preserve evidence and save the clothes you were wearing.
  • Report the incident to law enforcement. This can help you regain a sense of power and control.
  • Seek counseling. Counseling can help with emotional and psychological aspects of your well-being.
