New York Gov. Cuomo Resigns Following Findings of Sexual Harassment and Retaliation Against Victims

After 11 survivors came forward reporting sexual harassment, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced that he will resign. Those survivors’ statements were captured in a thorough investigation by the Office of State Attorney General Letitia James, leading to a public outcry for the governor’s resignation.

We honor Juneteenth as a celebration of freedom and Black culture and strength. 

We once again affirm racial justice is critical to our work and all efforts to address and end sexual violence.

We’re honored to present this year’s Visionary Voice Awards to these change makers who are committed to supporting survivors and preventing sexual violence.

NSVRC/PCAR Joint Statement on the Capitol Insurrection 1/6

Yesterday we saw events that demonstrate systemic racism, sexism, and the dangerous attitudes 
and behaviors that undermine efforts to end sexual violence play out in real time. While 
we respect the right to protest, which our Constitution guarantees, we condemn the use of 
force and violence to stoke fear and silence those carrying out the process of an election 
decided by the American people. 

We are pleased to recognize David D'Amora for his trailblazing work to bridge the fields of sex offender treatment and victim advocacy.

Chrystul Kizer is a sex trafficking survivor whose self-defense and survival was criminalized.

NSVRC announced today 24 recipients of its 2020 Visionary Voice Awards.
