RAINN Statement on Rolling Stone UVA sexual assault

"Sexual assault happens all too frequently in the US: every two minutes, according to Justice Department statistics. It is our hope that this controversy will not deter victims from coming forward and reporting their assault and receiving the support they deserve. To survivors out there who have yet to reach out for help, please know that the National Sexual Assault Hotline is available 24/7, by phone at 800.656.HOPE and online at rainn.org."

-- Scott Berkowitz, president and founder of RAINN
