Stand Up Against Rape Culture
The Sexual Violence Center recognizes the insidious and harmful effects of rape culture upon our communities. Like any culture, we all play some role in perpetuating it. And we can all play a role in changing it.

Backpack and Underwear Drive
2014 (Even though the initial drive has finished - we are still collecting underwear at SVC indefinitely!) — Often, when a person receives an evidentiary exam after a sexual assault, their underwear is kept for evidence. SVC is partnering with Sexual Assault Resource Service to collect new underwear for patients of all genders so they may have a pair to wear home that feels right for them.
