SEEK THEN SPEAK offers sexual assault survivors and support people a way to privately gather information and explore options for medical care, supportive services, and reporting to police (SEEK). If they choose, survivors can then begin the process of reporting to police by completing a detailed, self-guided interview (SPEAK).
SEEK provides critical information on:
- Sexual assault and abuse
- Crime victim rights
- Supportive services
- Medical care
- Reporting to police
SPEAK guides survivors through questions designed to gather critical information about their sexual assault. The program then generates a PDF report the survivor can give to law enforcement, as a first step toward investigating their sexual assault. Specifically, survivors can download this PDF on their own device, and either:
- Save it for now
- Email it to someone (including themselves), or
- Print it out.
If they are not yet ready to share their information, survivors can also upload it to VictimsVoice, where it will be securely stored until they are ready to release it.
SEEK THEN SPEAK is available for survivors any time or place they choose, in more than 100 languages. We are excited to offer this new option for support and action.
SEEK THEN SPEAK is brought to you by End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), and technology partner VictimsVoice. The project is partially funded with an American Bar Endowment (ABE) Opportunity Grant.
