Survivors Have Options
Survivors of interpersonal violence have the right to choose who to talk with about their experiences, and what they want to do next. Please contact a confidential SHARE advocate to discuss these options & more:
- Get medical care (including emergency contraception and evidence collection)
- Receive counseling and referrals
- Learn about supportive measures (including academic, financial, and safety)
- Get information and supportive measures without reporting to the college (contact email@example.com or Rowan Frost, SHARE program director: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Make a report to the college and receive supportive measures without an investigation (contact Chris Toutain, Title IX Coordinator: email@example.com)
- Make a formal complaint to initiate an investigation and grievance process (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Report to law enforcement (with help from the college if you want it)
SHARE Programs & Services
Confidential Advocates provide support for people who have experienced any kind of interpersonal violence, including sexual harassment, relationship abuse, unwanted sexual contact, sexual assault, and stalking. We also provide primary prevention education, focusing on community accountability and bystander intervention. SHARE advocates and the program director are certified confidential advocates with legal privilege, and are not legally allowed to share most information they receive without written permisson of the survivor. In addition to individual meetings, SHARE's survivor peer support group provides community for survivors. Contact email@example.com for information.
Night Owls offer students support in staying safe during weekend evenings and special social events. Night Owls walk campus between 10pm and 2am on Friday and Saturday nights, offering support such as accompaniment to a residence hall, a snack or some water, and friendly conversation. They have no enforcement role, but will call community safety for support if asked, or if someone is experiencing a medical emergency. Night Owls and advocates also staff SHARE Lounge, a safe and sober space open from 10pm-1am on Friday and Saturday nights
The Sexual Health Education program provides safer sex supplies and information to students on and off campus.
Your Body, Your Choice
SHARE unreservedly supports consent, choice, and bodily autonomy. If you are a person who can get pregnant and live in one of the states where abortion is now illegal, we encourage you to take steps to protect yourself, and to share information with others.
