As part of our vision to end sexual violence through healing and social change, BARCC is committed to raising awareness of sexual violence and the issues surrounding it. The news media can play a powerful role in educating the public about sexual violence, and we are happy to work as partners with and resources for our colleagues in the news media to provide accurate information to the community.
- BARCC does not generally permit photographs to be taken on-site at our offices. We may be able to supply you with our own photos or stock photographs for use.
- We can sometimes, with advance notice, connect reporters with survivors who have agreed to share their story. BARCC does not share information about survivors or their stories unless granted prior permission by the survivor.
- Since many survivors are likely to read media stories related to BARCC or to sexual assault, we ask that our hotline information (800-841-8371, barcc.org/chat) be included in the body of a story or in a sidebar.
