Sexual Health, Advocacy & Relationship Education

Sexual Health, Advocacy & Relationship Education (SHARE) Advocates

SHARE advocates are students committed to ensuring that survivors of sexual and relationship violence have the information and support they need. You can contact any one of us directly or email us at advocates@reed.edu. During the summer, response times may be longer than 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)
  • Support for allies 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 investigation or judicial process.
