Advocacy Services

Review Survivor’s Rights and Options

The victim advocate is available to review your rights and options as a survivor of sexual assault, sexual harassment, IPV or stalking. Whether you want information or assistance with reporting the incident, or if you need academic intervention or other resources, you can meet with the victim advocate to review all of your rights and options available on and off campus.

Academic intervention

If you need academic intervention, we may be able to facilitate that so that you will experience minimal loss in academic standing.

Assist in obtaining counseling

Our advocate can refer you for services and even accompany you to your first session if you would like.

Assist in obtaining medical care

Even if you do not report the crime to law enforcement, you may need medical care. We can assist in obtaining that medical care for your health and well-being. 

Assist in reporting

If you decide you would like to report the crime to law enforcement or Sacramento State’s Office of Equal Opportunity, the victim advocate can help set up appointments and accompany you to those appointments. The advocate will provide you with all necessary information about your reporting options and to empower you to make a decision that feels best for you.

Assist in obtaining legal help

The victim advocate can help with information regarding restraining orders, Victim’s Compensation, and accompany you to detective interviews, district attorney interviews, and even some court proceedings. The victim advocate cannot give legal advice but can help give you resources for legal aid.
