Survivor Support

End Rape on Campus

End Rape on Campus provides a variety of resources for survivors of campus sexual violence. It offers direct support by connecting survivors to mental health professionals and attorneys. It also helps students advocate for policy changes on the campus, local, state, and federal levels. Finally, the organization supplies educational resources for students, faculty, and staff on sexual harassment prevention.

Faculty Against Rape

The first organization of its kind in academia, Faculty Against Rape (FAR) was created by faculty for faculty facing sexual harassment, sexual violence, and retaliation on campuses throughout the country. Through its network of attorneys and media contacts, FAR provides individual faculty members with strategic solutions and unparalleled support. As a result, FAR has played a highly impactful behind-the-scenes role in some of the most high profile campus harassment cases today.

Know Your Title IX

A youth-led organization, Know Your Title IX educates students about gender discrimination and sexual harassment, advocates for change at the campus, state and federal levels, and offers a wealth of resources for survivors of abusive relationships, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. This page also offers a link for advocates and activists struggling with burnout.

Men Can Stop Rape

An organization created to mobilize men in the effort to end violence against women, Men Can Stop Rape also provides resources for male victims of sexual violence and harassment.

RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network)

RAINN offers a hotline (800-656-HOPE [4673]) that offers emergency assistance with survivors of sexual assault and provides information about sexual violence for allies, advocates, and policymakers.

Time’s Up

An organization that emerged in the wake of the #MeToo movement in the television, film, and theater industries, Time’s Up now advocates to improve the workplace environment on behalf of women in all industries. Through the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, the organization provides low-income women and people of color with the resources to pursue lawsuits in response to workplace discrimination and harassment. It also provides links to organizations that offer survivors all forms of support.
