24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)


Sexual violence includes all acts of sexual violence such as rape, forced sodomy, forced oral copulation, acts committed with foreign objects and any other unwanted sexual activity.

Sexual assault or rape can happen to anyone—people of any age, any ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or physical ability.

Sexual assault or rape occurs when a person is forced, coerced, or manipulated into participating in a sexual act to which she or he has not freely consented.

Consent is willing participation that is actively, not passively, given. Consent is based on choice and equal power and is clear and voluntary. Absence of resistance or physical injury does not mean consent.

Victim blaming occurs when the victim of a crime or wrongful act is held partially or entirely responsible for the harm that befell them.


Every 68 seconds, somewhere in the U.S, someone is sexually assaulted, according to RAINN.

1 in 5 American women and 1 in 33 American men have been the victim of attempted or completed rape in their lifetime, according to RAINN.

8 out of 10 perpetrators are someone known to the victim, according to RAINN.

For every 1,000 rapes only 5 will lead to a felony conviction according to RAINN.

1 out of every 10 rape victims is male, according to RAINN.
