Her Campus Point Park advocates a world that will (hopefully) someday be free of sexual violence. Until that day comes, it is vital we do all we can to aid victims and educate as many people as possible on the subject. In honor of Her Campus Point Park’s Sexual Violence Awareness Week, we have compiled a list of hotlines that are open to victims of sexual assault 24/7. If you or someone you know is a victim with no one to turn to, these hotlines have experts trained in helping victims of sexual assault. Below are the names of the organizations, links to their websites and the numbers to call .
PAAR – Pittsburgh Action Against Rape
RAINN – Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network
