What is Sexual Assault?
Sexual Assault, also known as Sexual violence, is any type of unwanted sexual contact, ranging from sexist attitudes and actions to rape and murder. Sexual violence can include words and actions of a sexual nature against a person’s will. An offender might also use force, threats, manipulation, or coercion to commit sexual violence.

Did you know?
Someone is assaulted every 73 seconds, and every 9 minutes that victim is a child.


Just last year...

  • We received 135 calls to our 24-Hour Helplines.
  • 925 participants and their significant other received services.
  • and
  • Our Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) were activated 97 times, providing confidential advocacy and support to people victimized through the sexual assault exam process while educating them of their rights.

* Data reflect WCYFS fiscal year from July 1, 2019 – June 31, 2020.

Denim Day graphic

Denim Day, a campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.


On Wednesday, April 28, 2021, millions of people across the works will wear jeans with a purpose, support individuals and families affected after being sexually assaulted and educate themselves and others about all forms of sexual assault/violence.

Spread the Word! Click HERE to download the Denim Day Flyer. 


Why Denim?
Denim Day was established 20 years ago in 1999 after a controversial ruling by the Italian Supreme Court. An 18-year-old girl in Italy was raped by her driving instructor, but the Italian Supreme Court overturned the rape conviction on the basis of the victim’s clothing. They concluded that since the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped to remove them and, therefore, gave consent. Wearing jeans on Denim Day reminds us of the harmful attitudes and misconceptions surrounding sexual assault.

For more information on the case, visit The New York Times’ coverage.
