Sexual Violence Prevention & Response

Contact us

Sexual violence is any unwanted sexual attention (physical or non-physical contact) with someone who does not, or cannot consent (give permission). Sexual violence can happen to anyone regardless of age, income appearance or lifestyle. No matter what the circumstances, sexual violence is never the victim's fault.

If you are concerned about the immediate safety of you or someone you know, call 911.
