Sexual violence comes in many forms. It can be defined as any unwanted sexual activity that is forced, threatened, coerced, or manipulated onto an individual. Sexual violence is motivated by the need to control, dominate, humiliate, and harm another individual. It violates a person’s feeling of trust and safety and impacts individuals, families, and communities as a whole. Sexual violence can include:

  • Sexual assault/rape 
  • Child sexual abuse 
  • Incest 
  • Criminal sexual contact/unwanted touching 
  • Internet stalking to obtain sex 
  • Drug-facilitated sexual assault 
  • Sexual harassment 
  • Voyeurism 
  • Exhibitionism 

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This event is one of many in which SERV aims to educate the public about sexual violence and how we can all help with prevention efforts in our community. Share your photos from our events on social media using #StandSpeakEmpower to spread the word.
