It’s on Us
to Stop the Abuse.

Every single one of us has the power to help create a safer world, free from sexual violence.

Sexual violence is a public health problem that impacts every community and affects people across the lifespan. Some populations are at greater risk for experiencing sexual violence including children, people with disabilities, those who identify as LGBTQ+, and other marginalized individuals. Those who commit sexual violence usually know their victims. Prevention requires a comprehensive and collective effort. Families and communities can help raise awareness, create opportunities to address inequities, and increase protective factors to reduce the risk of sexual violence.
