Sexual Health, Advocacy & Relationship Education

Sexual Health, Advocacy & Relationship Education (SHARE) Advocates

You can contact any one of us directly or email us at We respond within 24 hours. 

What we do

Sexual Health, Advocacy & Relationship Education (SHARE) advocates are highly trained Reed students who provide a wide range of confidential services for survivors of sexual harassment, sexual assault, relationship abuse, and stalking. Advocates offer:

  • Emotional support for all survivors, regardless of when the incident happened
  • Information about options and campus processes
  • Referral to medical care, counseling, and other resources
  • Reporting assistance (college and/or police)
  • Coordinating transport for sexual assault forensic exams
  • Support for friends of survivors

SHARE advocates are certified confidential with privilege in the state of Oregon, which means that they cannot share almost anything a survivor tells them without their permission (exceptions are intent to harm another person or abuse of a child). Advocates do not advise, but work with survivors to empower them make informed choices from the range of options available to them. We can help survivors exercise their rights, accompany survivors when a formal report is filed, and support them through the Title IX Board process. SHARE Advocates receive more than 40 hours of training, and are supervised by the Program Director for Sexual Health, Advocacy & Relationship Education (SHARE).

Who We Are

We are students who are committed to ensuring that survivors of sexual and relationship violence get the support and services they want.

I’m a queer junior biology major from Charlotte, NC. I am passionate about human rights, poetry, science, and perfecting my lemon pound cake recipe. Please reach out to me if you ever want to talk! 

 Siena Nesbitt-Fox

Hello! I am a queer senior English major. I have been an advocate with SAPR since the beginning of my sophomore year, including serving as the Advocate Program Coordinator. I have experience with the legal aspects of SA/DV from working at the National Crime Victim Law Institute and interning at a domestic violence law firm in New York City. As an advocate and a Restorative Justice Facilitator, I am passionate about and dedicated to uplift, empower, and serve oppressed populations in my anti-violence work. After graduating, I hope to continue to support survivors and destroy rape culture. In my free time, I like to cross-stitch, watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, listen to ABBA, and spend time with my chosen family, partner and cat. If you want to talk, find out how to get involved with SAPR, or learn more about Survivor Support Group, text or email me!
