April Sexual Assault Awareness Month ImageEvery 68 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. Every 9 minutes, that victim is a child. One out of every 6 American women and 3% of American men (1 in 33) have been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. A majority of child victims are ages 12-17.

The term “sexual violence “is an all-encompassing, non-legal term that refers to crimes like sexual assault, sexual harassment, rape, and sexual abuse. There are often other crimes and forms of violence that arise jointly with these crimes. To learn more about types of sexual violence, click here.

After a sexual assault, it is hard to know how to react. You may be physically hurt, emotionally drained, or unsure what to do next. Learning more about your options and what steps you can take following sexual violence can help ground you in a difficult time. To learn more, click here.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month ImageDomestic violence (also referred to as intimate partner violence, dating or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. Domestic violence does not discriminate. People of any race, age, gender, sexuality, religion, education level, or economic status can be a victim or perpetrator of domestic violence. This includes behaviors that physically harm, intimidate, manipulate or control a partner through the use of physical or sexual violence, emotional abuse, financial control, and threats. It is also common for multiple forms of abuse to be present at the same time in abusive situations.

Domestic violence can also strain the people who witness, intervene, or simply recognize the tragic realities of relationship abuse. It can be painful and draining (physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially) to watch the people in our lives abuse or be abused. In that regard, we are all impacted by any form of abuse, and it is on each one of us to take steps to end and prevent future abusive behavior.
