Our effort to eliminate sexual harassment, sexual assault, and domestic violence, has its roots in the justice and liberation movements of the mid-20th Century. Fundamentally, this kind of activism is about asserting the dignity of all people. The movements to address sexual violence such as the #Me Too movement, embodies the same spirit that lives in the fights for women’s rights, LGBTQ+ equity, racial justice, and so many more.
As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, and rape and sexual violence crisis centers and sexual assault and sexual violence programs adjust to new ways of meeting survivors’ needs, it has never been more important to evaluate work to end sexual violence, and recognize the connections to broader justice movements such as LGBTQ+ equity, racial equity, economic justice, health equity, immigrant justice that seek to create a society where the dignity of every person is valued and respected.
These resources and tool kit created by ValorUS (formally California Coalition Against Sexual Assault - CALCASA) reflect the connections across movements.
