Providing Support to Alabama's First Responders


 THE VICTIMS OF RAPE HAVE MANY FACES

Recent studies show that rape is still all too prevalent. 

Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every 2 minutes. By the age of 18, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be victimized. In fact, you are most likely to be raped by someone you know: a friend, an acquaintance, a relative or even the neighbor next door. Find out more about what the Alabama Coalition Against Rape is doing to stop sexual violence and help the survivors of this horrendous crime.
