Every 92 seconds a person is sexually assaulted in the United States. One in three women and one in six men have experienced some form of sexual violence in their lifetime. Rape is the most under-reported crime; 63% of sexual assaults are not reported to police. Sexual violence does not discriminate. It impacts every community. It affects people of all ages, genders, socio-economic status and ethnicity. Your response matters.
In this training we will discuss the short and long-term impacts of sexual violence, system victims often encounter, options available, and skills and knowledge needed to more effectively respond to victims of sexual assault.
