Healing Is Possible: Community Response to Sexual Assault

This post, written by KCSARC's Prevention Services Specialist Rachel Taylor, was originally published on July 8 on KCTS9.

No on 1515 – Decline to Sign

Prevention, safety, and freedom from sexual assault are the center of KCSARC’s vision and mission. 

Because of that, you would be forgiven for thinking we would support an initiative proposing to make public restrooms safer. After all, that’s what the proponents of 1515 are saying; that transgender individuals threaten women and children in public restrooms. I want to take this opportunity to set the record straight.   

There is no basis for the claim that transgender people make public restrooms unsafe. 

GiveBIG The best day to join together and invest in our community!

We all know Seattle is a hot place to be right now. With people moving here from all across the country for new job opportunities, the great outdoors, or just the food and coffee alone, Seattle seems to have something for everyone. I feel so lucky to call the Pacific Northwest my home. And right now, we have a big reason to celebrate the Puget Sound and all its glory!

The Seattle Foundation, for its 6th year in a row, is spearheading a community giving movement to bring everyone together to make an impact – all in one day.

We can’t stop what we can’t talk about

I’ve been saying this for the past year. We can’t stop what we can’t talk about.

I was delighted to see intelligent portrayals of sexual assault and its impacts being front and center in this year’s Academy Awards.

First -- Spotlight.

HB 2033 / SB 6151 Why KCSARC is Proposing Change

Improving protections for sexual assault victims

Since KCSARC’s CourtWatch program was founded in 2010, an area of focus for has been Sexual Assault Protection Orders (SAPOs). Over the past 6 years, we’ve tracked nearly 600 SAPO cases filed in King County Superior Court, and are in a unique position to be able to identify patterns and areas where improvement is needed.

Reflecting on 2015

2015 Year End Letter

This is the time of year that I begin to hear people talk about how quickly the year has gone. Some say it with glee because 2015 brought about some rough patches; others wish it would never end because blessings have abounded.
