Community Education

The DC Rape Crisis Center works to build a future without sexual violence both by helping survivors heal and by advancing prevention and risk-reduction through education at all levels. The Center works in the schools and throughout the community helping people of all ages learn about sexual violence, about healthy relationships and sexuality, and about ways that they can advance risk-reduction in their own lives as well as those of their friends, family, and community.
