About Rape Victim Advocates of Chicago, IL


Story

Mission

Rape Victim Advocates (RVA) is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors through non-judgmental crisis intervention counseling, individual and group counseling, and medical and legal advocacy in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. RVA provides public education and institutional advocacy in order to improve the treatment of sexual assault survivors and to effect positive change in policies and public attitudes toward sexual assault.

Vision

RVA envisions a world where prevention efforts and global awareness of sexual violence expose rape myths, remove stigmas, eliminate rape and support all people as equal members of society.

Values

As we continue to work on the behalf of the survivors of sexual assault, we, the board and staff of Rape Victim Advocates are committed to:

Providing consistent, comprehensive and victim-centered services which address the needs of the populations we serve

Promoting a healthy, stable, and financially diverse workplace that encourages and supports staff

Working with marginalized and disempowered communities

Demanding accountability for individuals and institutions who have a responsibility to serve the community

Promoting prevention efforts to de-stigmatize and de-mythify sexual violence

Strive to support each person involved in this movement and to understand intersections of all oppressions and how they contribute to a rape culture.
