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.

Supporters are invited to participate on social media and share a photo wearing teal on the Day of Action on April 7th.

NSVRC and the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers are pleased to honor David Fowers with the 2019 Gail-Burns Smith Award.

Recipients include organizer Mariame Kaba, Colorado Senator Faith Winter, Cosby prosecutor Kristen Gibbons Feden, and Star Tribune Reporters

Supporters are Encouraged to Wear Teal on the Day of Action on April 2nd

Harrisburg, PA – It is vital that we hold those who commit sexual harassment, abuse, and assault accountable, regardless of their power, fame, or wealth. After the extensive documentation of abuses inflicted on Black girls and women by R. Kelly, NSVRC is pleased to learn that he is facing criminal charges for some of this conduct.

This case is a reminder that we must listen to and believe the accounts of Black women and girls, who experience sexual violence at higher rates than other groups of women but are often disbelieved and face systemic barriers rooted in oppression.
