RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, online.rainn.org y rainn.org/es) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country and operates the DoD Safe Helpline for the Department of Defense. RAINN also carries out programs to prevent sexual violence, help survivors, and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.
The National Center on Violence Against Women in the Black Community, also known as Ujima, serves as a national, culturally-specific services issue resource center to provide support to and be a voice for the Black Community in response to domestic, sexual, and community violence.
Men Can Stop Rape
In 1997, Men Can Stop Rape began mobilizing men and boys to use their strength for creating cultures free from violence. Twenty-five years later, every day in service of our vision to institutionalize primary prevention of men’s violence against women and girls brings us to a safer tomorrow for all.
Sexual Assault Happens to Men
It is only a myth in our society that men are not sexually assaulted, or that they are only sexually assaulted in prisons. In fact, 9% of all rape victims outside of criminal institutions are male (U.S. Department of Justice, 1994). It is important to note, however, that very few studies have been done to document the sexual abuse or sexual assault of males. Furthermore, it is estimated that male survivors report sexual assault and abuse even less frequently than female survivors, and so it is difficult to make an accurate estimate of the number of men and boys who are being assaulted and abused.
