Today and everyday the NL Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre, and The Journey Project - NL are here for all survivors of sexual violence. Thank-you to all of the community members and organizations that are sharing our contact information widely.Last week, we shared this message, and today we feel it bears repeating: This past few weeks, we’ve seen story after story about sexual violence court cases. Whenever sexual violence is in the media we hold space for the Jane and John Doe’s at the center of these stories - as we should. We also know that SO many survivors will never get their ‘day in court.’ And, those that do rarely get the accountability, healing, and justice they deserve. Every week, court dockets across Newfoundland AND Labrador are filled with charges related to sexual violence. And while the system fails to keep up with the needs of our community - know that you are not alone. Every day, survivors are doing the work and there is a community here to support you. Our volunteers are always available 24/7 at 1-800-726-2743. If you are thinking about navigating the legal system, or have already started a legal process, The Journey Project - NL is here to help 1-833-722-2805.ID: A bluish-filtered background of low hills and ocean with black text overlayed. The text reads "Here for her. Here for you. Today. Everyday." and includes the logos of the NLSACPC and The Journey Project. ... See MoreSee Less

#DidYouKnow that only 5%-10% of sexual assaults are reported to the police?There are many reasons why a survivor might not report. These reasons can include:-Distrust in the legal system-Fear of not being believed-Self blame, guilt, and shame-Sharing social circles with the perpetrator-Fear of retaliation-Lack of access to the legal systemKnow that whether or not you report, we believe you. If you are thinking about navigating the legal system, or have already started a legal process, the Journey Project is here to help 1-833-722-2805 or support@journeyprojectnl.ca.Our volunteers are always available 24/7 at 1-800-726-2743.
