Module 6
Considerations for Advocacy on Behalf of Victims from Vulnerable Populations


While rates of sexual violence in the U.S. are staggering, some groups are even more vulnerable to victimization than others.  Additionally, some sexual assault victims face even greater hurdles to navigating the criminal justice system than others.  This module addresses concerns unique to sexual assault victims from particularly vulnerable populations:

  • Teen victims
  • LGBTQ victims
  • Immigrant victims
  • Native American victims
  • Elderly victims
  • Victims with disabilities

This module will be available to you as soon as you complete Module 1. To complete a module, you must read each of the lessons and complete the review quiz at the end.

It is important to finish Module 1 so that you have sufficient context for the rest of the program. After that, you'll have full access to jump between lessons however works best for you.

Tip: In the left sidebar, you'll notice a vertical bar of squares. Each square represents a lesson in that module. You can see at a glance which lessons you've done (brightly colored) and which ones you have not (gray).
