About VRC

Advocacy, education and services to help victims.

We place a high value on individuality, equality and the right of each person to be treated with dignity. We believe that everyone has a right to live free from oppression and violence.

We believe that everyone has the right and responsibility to make decisions regarding his/her own life, and we support a healthy environment that nurtures that ability in each person.

We believe in a society that cares for people in ways that encourages them to be productive and caring toward others, free from interference by those wishing to coerce a particular lifestyle, and free from the fear that they are in danger of having their lives violated by others.
