The VRLC offers free legal assistance to sexual assault survivors who have legal needs as a result of the assault in the following areas: privacy, safety, education (K-12 and college), employment, immigration, housing, LGBTQ-specific issues, criminal justice advocacy, and financial stability. Our legal services are available to sexual assault survivors of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

Please review each legal expertise area for more information and resources.

Are you a K-12 survivor, or a caretaker of a young survivor?
The VRLC's K-12 Guide and Resource Bank may be helpful resources for you. If you are located in Massachusetts or Oregon, please call our intake line at the number above.

Are you a survivor considering speaking with the media? 
Speaking about your experience of sexual violence can be empowering. If you are considering speaking to the media, please consider your privacy. Click here for CounterQuo's "Your Voice, Your Choice: A Survivor Media Guide."
