RAINN is a national leader

As the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, RAINN’s work is recognized by the media, members of Congress, and independent watchdog groups as a responsible leader among nonprofit organizations. Here are some of our accomplishments in Fiscal Year 2020:

  • RAINN’s victim services programs helped 308,000 people this fiscal year, a 5.4% increase in visitors over FY 2019.
  • RAINN volunteers contributed more than 24,000 hours of support.
  • We partnered with many TV shows, networks and streaming platforms on storylines about sexual violence, including Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly, Netflix’s Unbelievable, CBS’s NCIS, and more.
  • RAINN promoted the National Sexual Assault Hotline nationally on television and radio thorugh partnerships and award-winning public service announcements.
  • RAINN experts provided information and interviews to the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, CNN, ABC, NBC, Politico, and more than 500 other media outlets.
  • Speakers Bureau members were featured in multiple national and local media publications and outlets.
  • RAINN led the fight to successfully reauthorize the Debbie Smith Act. The reauthorization allows Congress to allocate $151 million dollars annually to state and local crime labs for DNA and rape kit testing.
  • RAINN experts held two congressional briefings, five briefings for the U.S. State Department and briefed 42 officials in 30 countries on issues related to sexual violence.
  • For the first time, RAINN established coordinated, grassroots advocacy campaigns on the ground in five states that focused on eliminating criminal states of limitations on sex crimes and expanding training for and access to sexual assault forensic nurse examiners.
  • We worked with organizations in higher education, secondary education, travel, ridesharing, finance, food and beverage, youth-serving, law, government, and entertainment sectors to review and strengthen their sexual assault prevention and response programs.
  • RAINN operated sexual assault and therapy fund hotlines for more than 30 federal agencies, universities, boarding schools, hospitals, and youth-serving organizations.
  • We continued to expand our National Leadership Council—a leadership group of individuals, corporate representation, and foundation liaisons who have been recognized based on their commitment to RAINN's mission—reflecting new and diverse voices.
