In recent years, the Latino community has experienced a growing level of stress as a result of the uncertain future produced by anti-immigrant policies and messages throughout the nation. This has created a concern at different levels, the movement against sexual violence must explore the intersectionality of sexual violence with other social justice issues and the effects of post-traumatic stress that survivors face, as well as vicarious trauma in service providers after the immigration system actions. We will explore flexible and proactive actions, safety tools that are essential to lighten the burden, and impact caused by the new anti-immigrant policies.

Start by Believing: Every Response Matters
When sexual assault victims turn to us, we know that every response matters. The responses of friends and family members matter. The responses of police officers, nurses, and advocates matter. Simply put, every response to a sexual assault victim matters, because it can have a powerful impact on their healing process and pursuit of justice. Take the pledge today to start by believing.

What is The Red Zone?
The “red zone” is shorthand for the first six weeks at the beginning of the school year when a disproportionate number of campus sexual assaults take place. The Department of Justice has identified the period between students’ arrival on campus in late August and Thanksgiving break as the stretch of time when a student is more likely to be assaulted than at any other point in their college career.
Why is it called the Red Zone?
Because it is believed that there are more sexual assaults on U.S. college campuses during this time than any other time during the school year.
*This does NOT mean that sexual assaults do not happen at other times of the year*
