Every 92 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. Sexual assault crosses all socio-economic classes. Men, women and children are all affected by sexual violence. From small community-based initiatives to large corporate entities, many organizations across the country are working to lower these statistics. In recognition of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (April), we have compiled a few funding sources currently available to support these efforts.
