As you can see, we have made some significant leaps in terms of our legal understanding of consent and sexual violence – but we still have a very long way to go. Survivors are still reluctant to report their experiences, and the social conception of “false allegations” being common, though easily disproven, remains widely held. With a shockingly low prosecution rate, and legal definitions that still leave some survivors behind, we still have a lot of work to do in the criminal justice system – and beyond.
We hope you will join us in doing that work. We believe survivors, and we believe that survivors deserve to be supported and heard. We work to change the culture, locally and nationally. We have worked to help thousands of survivors in the last thirty years, through all of the changes in law and society, and we want to be here for the survivors of the next thirty.
