According to the latest data reported by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency's (ALEA) Crime in Alabama, 1,890 rapes were reported to law enforcement. Seventy-nine percent of these rapes were committed by someone the victims knew. Nearly 23% of these victims were between the ages of 13 and 16.


Sexual assault remains vastly underreported, particularly within marginalized communities where cultural stigmas and language barriers can hinder access to support and justice.


Language access plays a pivotal role in addressing the needs of survivors within these communities. Limited English proficiency can pose significant challenges for individuals seeking assistance, understanding their rights, and navigating the legal system. Recognizing this, our organization is committed to providing comprehensive language support services, including interpretation and translation, to ensure that survivors from diverse linguistic backgrounds can access the resources and support they need to heal and seek justice.


Sexual assault manifests in various forms, including workplace sexual harassment, sexual violence, and assault on campuses. Workplace sexual harassment, for instance, can create a hostile environment, perpetuating power imbalances and undermining the victim's sense of safety and dignity. Similarly, sexual violence encompasses a range of coercive behaviors, from unwanted touching to rape, often leaving profound physical, emotional, and psychological scars on survivors. Moreover, sexual assault on campuses is a pressing concern, with a significant percentage of college women experiencing sexual assault during their academic tenure.
