Abortion Care

Survivor Access to Abortion Care

Denying access to critical health care, including abortion care, increases the danger a sexual or domestic violence victim is in and decreases their ability to seek safety from their rapist or leave their abusive partner. It is vital to their social and economic participation, reproductive autonomy, and the right to determine their own lives.

IPV and Gun Violence

Intimate partner violence and gun violence in the U.S. are inextricably linked. The intersection of these issues impacts millions of women, families, and communities across the country. With escalating levels of gun violence, combined with recent court decisions, advocacy efforts for increased gun safety measures are even more critical.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2023

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a national effort to increase public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on how it can be prevented

Building on our 2022 “Don’t Stand By” campaign and our 2023 “Level Up For Change” Prevention Digital Campaign, this campaign encourages parents, partners, and teens to step outside of their comfort zones and begin a conversation about healthy relationships, boundaries, consent, and sex.

Our Philosophy

SCCADVASA believes that the roots of domestic and sexual violence both lie in and are intertwined with historical and contemporary oppressive structures built around race, culture, gender, (dis)ability, and hurdles that are constructed in education, economics, and other areas to prevent all people achieving their full potential in safe communities.

Domestic violence and sexual assault are public health issues with far reaching implications that impact every individual across the world.
