SORT BY Relevancy
As a victim/survivor of sexual assault, you may have some of the following feelings...
Anger, Fear, Guilt, Loss of control, Powerlessness, Embarrassment, Depression, Isolation, Denial, Shame, Disbelief, Self-blame, Emotional shock
You may experience some or all of the above feelings. This is natural and every victim/survivor of sexual assault responds differently. (http://www.connsacs.org/seeksupport/assaulted.htm)
Remember, you are not alone and you are not to blame for what happened.
"Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are." - Rachel Naomi Remen
Laura Cordes is the executive director of the Connecticut Sexual Assault Crisis Services (CONNSACS), the coalition of the the state's nine community based sexual assault crisis services programs and Connecticut's leading voice to end sexual violence. An advocate and organizer for over twenty years, Laura has worked on numerous women’s health public policy initiatives including a two year effort to ensure access to emergency contraception for rape victims in all of Connecticut's hospitals and the development of a coalition that led to the creation of the state's Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner Program. She is a statutory member of the State of Connecticut's Criminal Justice Policy Advisory Commission, the Commission on the Standardization of the Collection of Evidence in Sexual Assault Investigations and the newly created Governor's Victim’s Rights Enforcement Advisory Commission.
Sexual violence encompasses a variety of criminal acts, ranging from sexual threats to unwanted contact to rape. These crimes are extremely underreported because of the stigma associated with sexual assault—and are therefore difficult to count in official statistics. Forcible rapes known to law enforcement have declined sharply since 1979, when they were at an all-time high. Sexual assault can happen to anyone of any age, gender, race, and socioeconomic background. It can happen at any time or place. Assailants may be strangers, acquaintances, friends, or family members. Perpetrators may use violence, threats, coercion, manipulation, or other forms of pressure or deception to commit sexual assault.
Join us as we use this platform to educate and bring awareness to you about sexual violence.

Additionally, they will discuss current alternative culturally specific sexual assault prevention and intervention strategies that are being implemented locally and that assist with healing from emotional and physical trauma.
In general, many people find the topic of sexual assault extremely uncomfortable to discuss, but it’s imperative that we have the conversation. Given that we don’t shy away from difficult topics on The Strong Stance, we are going to tackle this issue head on. Join us as we speak to Nicole Armstead and Christa Heilman from the Network for Victim Recovery of D.C. about the resources for survivors of sexual assault and the unique experiences of those that are trans* and gender non-conforming.

The Save Wiyabi Project: As an advocacy group, the project aims to address violence against Native American women, as well as develop community based solutions for Native women, in both tribal and urban areas.
In addition to addressing violence, we want to provide a space for open and respectful dialogue, sharing of stories, and positive and accurate images of Indigenous women. We want to dismantle systems of oppression and address the root causes of violence and culture that allows it to continue.
Wiyabi is Assiniboine for "women". This project was created as a social media campaign to assist in the Violence Against Women Act reauthorization with full tribal provisions.
Sexaul Assault Panel Discussion, Tonight we will be focusing on the stories from survivors. Janice & Jerome speaking the truth! One is a survivor of Adult Rape another is a survivor of Child Rape. It is important to hear the voices of those who have survived the horrifying trauma of these crimes. We often hear of victims being revictimed by the system and throughout society. How would you react to these crimes? What would your surviving days and night be filled with as you tried to pretend nothing is wrong?
Sexual Assault occurs across all genders and all ages. Remember these crimes are about POWER!! This is not about having sex with that child; that teen boy; or that 20 year old woman. This is a crime about having control in the most personal way over another being. How is this not wrong in the eyes of society? How is it that what we've learned through generations before us how deadly silence can be for the victims?
A child living with this once a week, or maybe once a day, is a terrified and trapped child. A woman or man who cannot go out for dinner, drinks, movie, shopping without fearing and protecting themselves from someone attacking them; this too is a trapped human being. Our courts are getting a bit better on prosecuting these crimes, but until society accepts their job to prevent and report these attacks, NONE OF US WILL EVER BE SAFE FROM A RAPIST!!
