Not-for-profit providing free legal assistance for survivors of sexual violence
SurvJustice is a national not-for-profit organization that increases the prospect of justice for all survivors of sexual violence through effective legal assistance, policy advocacy, and institutional training. SJ assists survivors of any sex, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation because discrimination is antithetical to our mission of justice. They recognizes sexual violence as a spectrum that includes rape, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and other forms gender- or sexual identity-based violence. SJ enforces victims’ rights within any system of justice to empower survivors and prevent re-victimization when accessing justice, and realizes that justice may mean something different to every survivor, whether a criminal conviction, civil remedy, administrative sanction, systematic institutional change, or acknowledgment of wrongdoing.
