The impacts of sexual assault that affect victims and their families can be unjust and emotionally devastating — victim advocates from the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response office are here to begin the healing process.
The SAPR office plays a significant part in providing support to sexual assault victims, which helps lead to increased reporting and accountability. An integral piece of these efforts are the victim advocates, who dedicate their time and efforts to the prevention of sexual assault.
“To be a victim advocate is a call for duty,” said Kenitha Woodhouse, 375th Air Mobility Wing SAPR specialist. “You have to have the compassion and the heart, to take on other people’s traumas. It’s a level of duty in which you are here to stand for them against injustices.”
