Every individual has a role to play:

  • Educate yourself about sexual assault and how to support a survivor. Click here for information about sexual assault.

  • Support survivors of sexual assault when they talk about their experience.

  • Use your voice to educate others about the prevalence of sexual assault and counter victim-blaming.

  • Be mindful of messages in the media that do not support survivors and of what you post on your own social media pages.  Everyone deserves safety and respect.

 

In addition to participating in local events to promote awareness and educate about sexual assault, here are some suggestions on how to support a friend or family member that has experienced sexual assault:

  • Believe them.  Let the survivor know that you believe them and that the assault was not their fault.

  • Listen. Listen with compassion and without judgement.  Avoid questions that begin with “why.”

  • Encourage them to seek additional support.  Let the survivor know that CARDV’s Crisis & Support Line is available 24 hours a day:

We offer support and information as well as connect survivors with additional resources. Se habla español.
