Sexual Trauma Awareness and Response, or STAR, is a nonprofit organization committed to serving youth and adult survivors of sexual trauma and engaging in institutional and social change work to build our communities’ capacity to prevent and respond responsibly to sexual violence. 

STAR’s vision is to build a healthy community free from sexual violence. We believe that ending sexual violence is possible by focusing our efforts on three distinct areas: 1) prevention of perpetration and unhealthy sexual behaviors through education and social norms change, 2) immediate intervention when individuals disclose an experience of sexual violence, and 3) long-term work to support survivors of complex trauma.

STAR has offices in Alexandria, Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
