Sexual Assault Resources

Sexual violence comprises any form of unwanted, unwelcomed, forceful or coercive sexual contact. These behaviors exist on a continuum that include, but are not limited to: lewdness, peer sexual harassment, sexual harassment, stalking, sexual assault, and rape. Although sometimes called by different names, the common thread that binds these behaviors together are issues of control, power, and violence.
