On this day 132 years ago, the Wounded Knee Massacre, also known as the Battle of Wounded Knee, was a massacre of nearly three hundred Lakota people by soldiers of the United States Army in 1890. In commemoration of the anniversary, we've crafted the following list meant to connect folks with resources that address an array of issues in the Indigenous and Native community.

Major U.S. police departments plagued by officer-on-officer sexual abuse and retaliation

Stories like these highlight how vital it is for all workplaces to work from the top-down to create structural, equitable change that gives survivors a greater ease of reporting without fear of retaliation.

An NBC News review of more than 60 lawsuits costing taxpayers more than $40 million found disturbing accounts of sexual misconduct against female cops in big-city departments.

From from flashing to groping, sexual harassment in public spaces, or “street
harassment,” is a problem many people experience, some with profound consequences. Since 2008, Stop Street Harassment (SSH) has collected thousands of street harassment stories. This groundbreaking study confirms what the stories suggest: Across all age, races, income levels, sexual orientations, and geographic locations, most people in the United States experience street harassment.

Understanding Disability Inclusion and Ableism

People with disabilities are integral parts of our world and community, yet they often face inaccessible or unwelcoming spaces offline and online. The word disability itself is a limiting term, as it refers to an immense spectrum of experiences. A disability-informed future requires more awareness, education, and standardized implementation of accessible technologies. Learn more about Understanding Disability Inclusion and Ableism:

This , and this , we remember all that was lost by Native American and Indigenous peoples in the name of power, control, and prejudice. As a mainstream organization that is committed to becoming an anti-racist organization, these histories must be recognized in order to better understand as a mainstream organization the continued ramifications of these wrongs. We must always remember this history and work to spread awareness about the impact of sexual violence on Native American and Indigenous peoples.

Transforming the Gender-Based Violence Movement

"The Problem: The gender based violence and childhood sexual abuse fields are guided by white women’s cultural norms which contributes to an overrepresentation of white women. This is a structural issue that is inherently set up to fail women of color and hinder their thriving.

The Solution: To address white supremacy and racism, we must recognize the historical contributions of women of color, create supportive equitable work environments that emphasize anti-racist practices, and maintain accountability structures. Intersectionality is critical to the advancement of this response."

Drawing Connections: Prevention Demands Equity

The theme of Sexual Assault Awareness Month this April is “Drawing Connections: Prevention Demands Equity.” The campaign calls on all individuals, communities, organizations, and institutions to change ourselves and the systems surrounding us to build racial equity and respect.

NSVRC creates free materials for the national Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign observed every April. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on how to prevent it.

Stay tuned as we continue to share more resources ahead of this year’s campaign. We know that one month alone isn’t enough to solve the serious and widespread issue of sexual violence. However, the attention April generates is an opportunity to energize and expand prevention efforts throughout the year.

Every April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month calls attention to the fact that sexual harassment, assault, and abuse are widespread and impact every person in the community. SAAM aims to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on how to prevent it.

Important Note: This graphic, and its accompanying report, were published in 2014 and use the words “prostitute” and “prostitution” while, in this context of youth being forced against their will into it, today would be referred to as “human trafficking.” The sexual violence awareness and prevention field continuously changes language to better reflect affected communities and the climate of the time as our understanding broadens.

Can you help us, PLEASE! In ANY way.
NSVRC are fake allies to male survivors.

One in four men will be the victims of at least one unwanted sexual experience across their lifespans. Groups such as the National Sexual Violence Resource Center who trumpet the utterly bogus "1 in 71 men are r**ed" statistic are NOT interested in listening to or supporting male survivors. That stat is cherrypicked to make it appear as though male sexual assault/abuse isn't really a problem in the United States, and is another way these groups try to pit male and female survivors against each other. It's purely political. It's time to stop the pointless bias against male survivors of sexual abuse and to put fake allies on notice.
I'm so proud to share my story as a survivor.

Hello, I am a doctoral student conducting a research study on help-seeking behaviors after experiencing sexual assault. If you are 18 years or older and had an unwanted sexual experience, please consider taking part in my confidential online survey. You can access the survey in the following link:

https://und.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3mxQbbcqgDohdHf

Results from this survey will assist researchers in understanding what services may be most helpful for survivors. The survey will take about 20-30 minutes to complete. Please contact me with any questions about this opportunity.
