PARTNERS IN HOPE

It takes a village to end sexual violence and its impact. You can be part of the circle of care for survivors in your own community. Show survivors and your own customers where your values are by becoming a Partner in Hope this year!

Centering Our Peace - The Black Survivors Collective

The Orange County Rape Crisis Center wishes to center the voices of people who have been marginalized, promote racial equality and health equality and to continue to best serve survivors. OCRCC will conduct an information gathering project focusing on Black survivors of sexual violence of all genders. We wish to partner with our community to find out what works, what does not, and what we should offer as support. We will do a series of information gatherings, in the form of interviews, virtual focus groups, an anonymous survey and other means, to collect narratives from the Black community. If you’re interested in participating in one or more ways, please click the link below.  ALL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION IS KEPT CONFIDENTIAL.

In addition to or instead of completing the survey, you may wish to be interviewed by Chimi Boyd-Keyes, the racial equity consultant. The interview should last no longer than 30 minutes. If this is true for you and you wish to be interviewed, feel free to complete this form. You will be asked to give a contact phone number. You can use your actual name or make up a name, as long as you feel comfortable.  Chimi will attempt to reach out to you to schedule an interview time.
