Sexual Assault

Overview

Sexual Assault
We believe you.

After a sexual assault, effects may persist for months and years. For this reason, crisis intervention and follow-up counseling are essential to every sexual assault survivor’s healing process.

What happened was not your fault.

Sexual assault is never a victim’s fault, regardless of what you were wearing, if you had said yes before, if you know the perpetrator(s) or if drugs or alcohol were involved.

We believe you.

WEAVE Advocates are available to you on the 24-hour Support and Information Line, 916-920-2952, for support and resources.

It is important to get medical attention.

Whether or not you report the assault to law enforcement, it is important to get checked out medically for any injuries, pregnancy, or sexually transmitted diseases.

It is your decision whether or not to report.

Call WEAVE’s 24-hour Support and Information Line, 916-920-2952, if you would like more information about reporting.  Call 911 (or ask a friend to call) to report your sexual assault to police.  Whether you decide to report of not, WEAVE is here for help and support.
