Sexual Violence: Policy & Systems Advocacy

This area provides information and tools to assist individuals and their collective(s) working to end sexual violence through public policy and systems change. Public policy includes federal, state, and local laws that impact victims and survivors of sexual violence and address prevention strategies, the configuration and operation of agencies and systems that respond to and prevent sexual violence, policies and protocols, and funding for the provision of services to victims and survivors. Systems advocacy is the tool that advocates and other professionals use to ensure the rights and needs of victims of sexual violence as they negotiate systems on their journey toward healing and also to ensure that systems are working to address the prevention of sexual violence.
