“What happened to us is not our fault and we feel that by coming together, speaking out and putting voices and faces to our cause, we can do a great deal to someday abolish this violence.”

About Us

All survivors of sexual assault deserve the freedom that is felt in meeting others who have shared similar experiences. It is okay to talk about what happened to you. We encourage it and we are here to listen. Whether it happened yesterday or 20 years ago, it’s never too late to express yourself: in whatever way is most comfortable to you. Through communication, we abolish the need for secrecy and empower ourselves.

SAAV believes it is possible and in fact, essential that survivors are given their right to privacy and confidentiality, particularly when it comes to the media or access to medical records. However, all survivors deserve any opportunity available to reach out and connect with other survivors when they are ready. Every person that survives sexual assault should have easy access to any and all information that could possibly assist in easing the pain of the healing process. Whether it’s minutes after the assault takes place or years; no woman should EVER have to ask twice for assistance.
