I first heard of UCASA when I was looking into becoming a victim advocate. The 40-hour training that they provided was extremely useful and well worth every penny. Since then, I have seen this organization get involved in supporting important legislation, expand the trainings they offer, and get more involved in reaching out to communities throughout Utah. The work that they do is absolutely critical.

The information UCASA provides at events I have attended has far exceeded those of other organizations. While most are focused on reducing the shock factor that comes with information on sexual assault, UCASA provides thorough, helpful information to community members an survivors that we may never have otherwise acquired.

This organization has made serious progress with changing the culture and the way the community thinks about and approaches sexual assault. I was sexually assaulted several times in my life and never realized it until finally my boyfriend, a man I loved, didn't listen when I said no. Only then did I realize that the numerous experiences I'd endured before then were sexual assault and were something that society shouldn't and wouldn't have just dismissed as commonplace. Something I had a right to be upset about and to never tolerate again in the future.

This organization does a lot to help raise awareness, increase understanding, and help victims. It helps people realize that they can use their voice to make a difference and get involved and to impact change.
