This Service Provider tool kit is a companion to the “Guide for Journalists.” It includes some basic information about the media, and provides a foundation for reshaping the public discussion on sexual assault. We hope that this resource will encourage relationships between local media and sexual assault programs. This resource will prepare you to be responsive while proposing strategies for approaching local media outlets.

The national attention on campus sexual assault has sparked conversations across the country about the needs of sexual assault survivors aged 18-24 who attend college. However, many people aged 18-24 do not attend college, but women in that age group still experience the highest rate of sexual assault than any other age group (Sinozich & Langton 2014). College enrollment is at the lowest it has been since 2003 (Norris, 2014), so a significant number of people from the age group most at risk for sexual violence do not benefit from the increased attention on campus sexual assault.

A desire to speak out is important, but preparation is key. Survivors of rape and abuse can talk about the issue of gender-related violence with unique authority. And for many who have lived through such violence, the act of sharing their stories can be transformative, and even healing. And yet. Speaking publicly about an issue that the world is still largely unwilling to confront can be a harrowing and even retraumatizing experience. At CounterQuo, we believe that the best way to embark on a media journey that you will not regret is to think through the challenges you may encounter before you come forward. That’s what “Your Voice, Your Choice” is all about.
