A recap of 2021-2022 for the North County Rape Crisis and Child Protection Center plus some exciting news on an upcoming event!
As an agency that operates on a 24-hour clock, we never stop, because sadly, crime never takes a break. One thing we said early on was that abuse didn’t stop just because a pandemic hit. If anything, it’s gotten worse.
Our boys are hurting. Our girls are hurting. In childhood, 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused and 1in 3 girls are sexually abused in childhood. The reality of it is, we cannot address the violence against women and girls unless we also acknowledge and honestly discuss the sexual violence against our boys and men. In a CDC survey in 2015, nearly 4 million men and 5.6 million women had been victims of sexual violence from the previous year. In one year.
