Advocacy Considerations

Every community has different perspectives and responses to violence. These community perspectives and responses reflect how violence is a fundamentally different experience from survivor to survivor. Individual communities strive to meet the needs of individuals in culturally and linguistically meaningful ways. Some of these perspectives are reflected in these sections. Contact us at with any questions, feedback and comments.

You may or may not notice that WCSAP sometimes uses “they” as a singular pronoun in our publications. Language is a powerful tool. It is ever evolving to reflect our culture. We create new words and use words in new ways to reflect our lived experiences and identities. WCSAP strives to reflect this cultural progression when discussing the experiences of survivors and advocates of all genders.
