There is no flattening the curve when it comes to sexual violence during the pandemic.


The quarantine has created an environment that perpetuates sexual violence and prevents survivors from accessing support.

Once quarantine restrictions fully lift, we expect to see a surge of sexual assault victims coming forward for help all at once.

We need you to stand with the VRLC as we stand by the side of survivors.

You can be the light for the survivors who need us most.

$10,000 = Help Answer the Calls of Survivors

As quarantine restrictions lift, there will be a surge of sexual assault survivors reaching out for help all at once. Your donation will help us hire and train three temporary legal staff to answer the influx of survivor calls. This temporary team can help support up to 50 rape and sexual assault survivors with legal needs in the realms of education, immigration, housing, education, privacy, and safety.

$5,000 = Let A Young Survivor Be A Kid Again

Representing young survivors in grades K-12 is taking three times as long. This is the most at-risk population we serve, with the highest rate of attempted suicide. These cases have become the most time intensive cases during the pandemic due to virtual communication with schools, young survivors, and parents. Your donation ensures one child sexual abuse survivor will get the lifesaving legal support they need.

$2,500 = Ensure Emergency Housing Support for a Survivor

Survivors often face eviction due to the actions of their abusers and at no fault of their own. As the pandemic eviction moratorium is about to expire, many survivors will need emergency housing support. With your help, a VRLC attorney can prevent one survivor and her children from becoming homeless.

$1,000 = Secure Virtual Protection Orders for Two Survivors

Courts are physically closed but there is an increased need for protection orders now. Protection order hearings are being conducted by phone and video but taking twice the amount of time. Survivors are often left waiting hours on the phone for their case to be called. Your donation secures two protection orders in this ever-changing environment.

$500 = Protect A Survivor’s Privacy in Court

In most criminal trials, the perpetrator tries to access the sexual assault victim’s medical, mental health, and education records to attack the victim’s credibility. Even during a pandemic, sexual assault victims continue to be portrayed as liars. But with your help, a VRLC attorney can prevent a survivor’s privacy and character from being violated.

$250 = Create Safety Plans for Two Survivors

Safety planning with a survivor during a pandemic is complex, especially if the perpetrator is within their quarantine circle or in their community. Your donation provides customized safety planning to help survivors feel safe at home, school, work, and online.

$100 = Train Three Pro Bono Attorneys

As quarantine restrictions lift, we anticipate a surge of sexual assault survivors to come forward, all immediately in need of legal assistance. Your donation provides training for three pro bono attorneys to assist survivors.
