What We Do

Roe v. Rape helps survivors of sexual violence heal through activism and prevents sexual violence through education.
When a person has experienced sexual assault, they often feel a sense of powerlessness. We hope to help survivors reclaim their power. Our coalition provides a supportive community to collectively fight for survivors' rights and make it clear that the survivor population, consisting of approximately 1.9 billion people worldwide, cannot be ignored. Roe v. Rape is a new organization, so currently only operates in Ann Arbor, MI, San Francisco, CA, and Washington, D.C.; however, we intend to expand to all fifty states and beyond in the coming months and years.

We advocate for laws, policies, and practices that treat survivors with the respect that they deserve.


We prevent sexual violence through education and provide resources for survivors and allies.


We help survivors heal through activism and take back their power.
