A lack of systemic understanding coupled with the unique stressors communities of color face has led to marginalized and under served populations of sexual violence survivors.  Stressors include a history of racism and harm caused by institutions designed to support survivors.  Therefore, survivors of color may feel that they will not be treated with respect and/or understanding of their unique needs when they report violence.

CVRC staff are committed to serving communities of color by meeting students where they are in their healing journey and providing free and confidential, culturally competent and affirming services.
