Advocacy for survivors of sexual assault has many dimensions, but is rooted in assisting each survivor in their healing process. Advocacy may involve taking a hotline call, meeting someone at a hospital for a forensic exam, explaining the legal process or assisting a survivor with basic needs like safe housing or maintaining employment.

Since the 1970's, advocates in Washington State have supported survivors and encouraged communities to work to end sexual assault. In this section of our website, you will find resources about the work of advocates.
