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.

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.
This sentence acknowledges the experiences of the dozens of women abused by Cosby and sends a clear message that sexual harassment, misconduct and abuse cannot and will not be tolerated even years after the event.
