No other violent crime against a person is treated so injustly by society than rape and other sex crimes. Victim blaming and rape culture continue to be a pervasive problem that Survivors face. A good first step in responding to the needs of Survivors has been through the establishment of a trauma competent, victim centered advocacy program. An Advocate plays a crucial role in standing in the gap for Survivors when the Survivor's pressing need for protection and justice is disregarded.
