Sexual Assault Awareness Month: Uplifting Victims and Survivors through Trauma-Informed Resources

SA-Blog-Picture

During Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the NYS TINRC would like to raise awareness for the victims and survivors of sexual assault and to let them know that help is available. Sexual assault affects hundreds of people in the United States each day. With awareness, resources, and each other, we can uplift victims and support survivors on their healing journeys.

Every 68 seconds, someone in the US is sexually assaulted.
