16 Days: Local NYC/NJ Area Rape and Sexual Assault Resources

Another one of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign has prompted us to focus on local NYC area resources for survivors of rape and sexual assault.  This is in response during an important time for Filipina women everywhere, particularly all over the Philippines where stories of rape are frequently surfacing.  GABRIELA Philippines demands that President Aquino take a firmer stance to end violence against all women.  As women living in the United States, we understand that our safety means nothing when violence is inflicted across the world against or sisters all over the world.  By providing this resource page, FiRE really hopes to reach our local NYC community, and any survivors out there looking for resources and guidance.

This page  is a permanent addition to our website, and lists several hotlines, clinics, and advocacy centers in the area.  The Rape and Sexual Assault Links page can be accessed at the above link under “Resources.”    We welcome any new link submissions of affordable/low-cost medical care on the site, so please leave us a comment on the page!
