Re-entry & Resiliency Plan (updated 7/24/21)
Most victims of sexual violence know the person who assaults them. You should not stop being cautious just because you or your friends know the people you are with.
Reducing your risk is not about being responsible for an assault. It is NEVER the victim’s fault. Responsibility always lies with the person who commits the assault.
Be aware of the behavior of your friends. Is their behavior out of character? Do they seem too “out of it” for what they’ve had to drink?
Do you really trust whom you are with? Are you sure they won’t make you do anything you don’t want to do? Will they take “NO” for an answer?
If you are going home with someone different, let someone know. Introduce them to your friends.
