Sexual violence is a term used to describe many situations including but not limited to rape. Because sexual violence works in conjunction with racism, classism, sexism and homophobia, men, women and trans-identified survivors experience this violence in different ways. Sexual assault is broadly defined as any sexual contact that occurred without knowing and free-will consent.

As a survivor of sexual assault, there are options available to you. This website offers information and provides resources so that you can decide what will be most helpful for your individual process of healing and recovery.
