It’s Time For Action

The month of April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and it is time to speak up and speak out against sexual violence.  Over the past year with the help of the No More campaign sexual assault has received national attention and increased public awareness.  The Women’s Resource Center is among 84 rape crisis centers and rape prevention programs in the state of California.  We provide survivors with advocates and a place to turn in their time of need.  We work hard to educate and promote public policy on the issue of sexual assault.  Join us this month is standing up to say 1 in 5 is not an acceptable number. WRC will be joining the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and Denim Day USA to promote a CALL FOR ACTION to end sexual violence on campuses.
