What to Do if You Experience or Witness Any Form of Sexual Misconduct
Sexual misconduct, which includes sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence, including dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking, is never okay, and it is never your fault when it happens to you. If you experience sexual violence or relationship violence of any kind, it's important to get help as soon as possible.
If you see something that looks like sexual violence, don't hesitate. Call for help. Someone's future could depend on it.
