Sexual Assault Awareness Month Resources & Workshops April 21-28

Every 73 seconds a person in the United States is sexually assaulted. Research shows that survivors of sexual assault face an increased risk of depression, PTSD, substance abuse and self-harm – all significant barriers to success in school, in the workplace, and in all other areas of life.
Sexual assault affects all of us, directly and indirectly. We can all do something to help:

• Be an active bystander. If you see someone at risk of being harmed, do something – intervene directly (if it’s safe to do so), create a distraction or enlist the help of others to interrupt the situation.

• Support survivors. It is hard to know what to say when someone tells you they have been sexually assaulted. The most important things you can do are listen with compassion, withhold judgement, and assist them in finding resources that will provide the help they need.

• Report sexual assault involving members of the SCC community to the Title IX Coordinator. Submit a report online, or email TitleIXCoordinator@shoreline.edu.
