Know that sexual assault is never the survivor’s fault.

You have the right to make informed choices.


  • Personal safety is first.
    • Get to a safe environment.
    • Call a friend.
    • If unsure about your safety or if you need immediate medical assistance, call 9-1-1.
  • If you are physically hurt, get medical attention.
    • Any medical provider who knows or suspects you are being treated for physical injuries related to an assault is required by law to report to law enforcement.
    • You do not have to cooperate with any investigation.
    • You can have personal support people with you, including a Verity crisis counselor/advocate.
