The Rape Crisis Center’s 40th Anniversary Year

Final Two Events of the 40th Anniversary Year!

The Rape Crisis Center was founded as Community Action Against Rape in January, 1974.  Few Las Vegas institutions have lasted 40 years, but thanks to the dedication of countless volunteers, donors, and community supporters, we have been here, serving victims of sexual assault for four decades.

Please be a part of our anniversary celebrations!

Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)

April

April is recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Every year, The Rape Crisis Center hosts a variety of events to bring awareness to issues around sexual assault throughout the month of April.

Denim Day

Denim Day encourages the community at large to wear denim as a show of solidarity with victims of sexual violence everywhere. The day commemorates a decision by the Supreme Court of Italy, which overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans, and the panel concluded she must have assisted her attacker in taking them off, and therefore was consenting. This terrible decision brought worldwide attention to the rampant victim blaming that continues to occur with sexual assault.

We encourage businesses to offer employees an opportunity to wear denim to work that day, typically in the last week of April each year.

MISSION

We commit to offering help, hope, and healing to those affected by sexual violence. We provide education, awareness and support as far as our arms can reach.

  • Why I'm here doing this! I'm not doing this because I am trapped in a place of pain anymore, I have moved on emotionally. I am doing this to bring other Narcissistic abuse survivors into healing because I know the pain of it. Raising awareness and promoting healing of other survivors is why I am still here!

  • Hope for change keeps many women in abusive relationships after they have ceased to be viable. Unfortunately change can only happen if our partner chooses to make that commitment and seeks help. #abuse #abusiverelationships #dv #domesticviolence #survivor #quote
