Sexual Assault & Rape

Sexual assault and rape are violent crimes of power and control that are acted through sexual means. It is not just the act of sex.

Rape can happen to anyone—young or old, female or male. It is terrifying and traumatizing to experience a loss of power or control over one’s own body. Sexual assault is often used as a form of hate crime against communities that are marginalized within our society.

Sexual assault is never your fault.
