Become a sexual assault advocate or counselor for your local sexual assault crisis center or hospital based sexual assault program.
Support someone who discloses their story. Listen. Provide information and resources. And if you feel like you want to share your story and your journey towards healing, do so. Let them know there is light even during the darkest of times.
Raise awareness on sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. Educate yourself on the issues and share with others. Start a discussion with friends and family.
Join a speaker's bureau (i.e. at your local sexual assault crisis center) so that you have an opportunity to speak out and make your voice heard. You may have the opportunity to reach businesses, schools, universities and religious groups.
Reach out to members of your community who may work with survivors yet receive little or no training (law enforcement, emergency workers and members of the judicial system).
Write your story and share it (online communities for survivors, magazines, newspapers).
Write letters to newspapers, magazines, local news stations addressing the misrepresentation of sexual assault in the media and how it shapes society's understanding of the scope and nature of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse.
Start a letter writing campaign to legislators and policymakers providing a personal and political perspective on sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse.
Begin your own discussion or support group
Donate your time and energy to local / national organizations by volunteering at a victim assistance organization or crisis center. Take part in an event being held such as a Take Back the Night during April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).
Donate your money no matter how much. Funding is needed to keep programs running and every penny counts.
