Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN)
RAINN is the nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization. RAINN operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE. RAINN carries out programs to prevent sexual assault, help victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice. RAINN uses its extensive entertainment industry and community-based connections to educate more than 120 million Americans each year about sexual assault.

Start by Believing is a public awareness campaign uniquely focused on the public response to sexual assault. Because a friend or family member is typically the first person a victim confides in after an assault, each individual’s personal reaction is the first step in a long path toward justice and healing. Knowing how to respond is critical—a negative response can worsen the trauma and foster an environment where perpetrators face zero consequences for their crimes.
Because rapists attack an average of six times, one failed response can equal five more victims. Start byBelieving will lead the way toward stopping this cycle, by creating a positive community response, informing the public, uniting allies and supporters, and improving our personal reactions. The goal is to change the world, and outcomes for victims, one response at a time. | Website: www.startbybelieving.org
End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI) was founded in 2003 and is lead by Sergeant Joanne Archambault, who retired from the San Diego Police Department after serving almost 23 years in law enforcement. Working with professionals inside and outside the criminal justice system, we seek to improve outcomes for victims and pursue accountability for their assailants. Our goal is to protect victims, prevent future attacks, and keep our communities safe.
As a professional training organization, we offer a broad portfolio of resources to improve criminal justice and community responses to gender-based violence. | Website: www.evawintl.org
