An act of sexual violence can devastate and derail an individual's life. The impact is long-lasting—months, years, even a lifetime. The Victim Rights Law Center provides free, comprehensive legal services for sexual assault victims with legal issues in Massachusetts and Oregon in the areas of privacy, safety, housing, education, employment, immigration, and financial stability. What we learn from representing individual survivors is harnessed to train thousands of advocates, attorneys, campus administrators, medical professionals, law enforcement, military personnel, and other professionals throughout the United States and U.S. Territories annually to improve the response to sexual violence. Anyone can be a victim of sexual violence, and we are proud to serve survivors of all gender identities, sexual orientations, races, and religions in Massachusetts and Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties, Oregon.
