Violence

I am in the process of making a booth for the "Human Rights Fair" for Durango High School in Las Vegas, NV. The category that my group chose for the fair was rape. I was wondering if you have any information, posters, etc. that you could send me to aid my group in the fair. Please respond to this request and I will give you an address that you could reach me at in order for this to take place. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Scott

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com and for helping to educate your community about the prevelance of rape. To help with your booth, please go to the V-Day Anti-Violence Resource Guide located at V-Day through Feminist.com. You will see that there are a few organizations listed that work specifically on the issue of rape. For instance, the National Institute on Marital and Date Rape. There is the also the NOW Legal Defense & Education Fund. I suggest that you contact these organizations directly for information. You should also take a look at our Violence Against Women section.

Also, if you want to have international resources, I suggest that you contact Equality Now. If you want local (Las Vegas based) resources, please use the Database of Women's Services located at Feminist.com to find a local rape crisis center. They will likely have material for you. This last suggestion is probably what will be most beneficial to your fellow students--this way they will know what is available in their community. And if you discover that there isn't anything locally, maybe you could work to get something started. Good luck.
