Whether your sexual assault is part of long-term domestic abuse or not, forceful acts of sexual violence are overwhelming and traumatic. You might not know where to turn or what to expect from the resources available. That’s where SEEK THEN SPEAK can help.

Self-Guided, Online Reporting Tool for Sexual Assault Victims
How Does It Work?
End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI) has partnered with VictimsVoice to create a self-guided, online interviewing tool for sexual assault victims. It is funded with an American Bar Endowment (ABE) Opportunity Grant, an influential grant program supporting innovative projects that help to meet critical legal needs and increase access to justice, particularly for vulnerable and underserved populations.
STEP 1: SEEK
Find answers to the information you need to understand the process, the available services, your rights, and how to maintain your privacy and safety.
Your privacy is respected. Nothing is recorded. It’s a process for you to gather information – that’s all.
STEP 2: SPEAK
Answer questions in a step-by-step process that collects the details needed for law enforcement to begin their investigation.
When you’re done, you can email, print, or download a copy. No information is stored in Seek Then Speak.
STEP 3: KEEP
You may want to collect the details while they are still clear in your mind, but not ready to come forward to the police.
VictimsVoice allows you to safely, privately, and securely store your report until you are ready to decide who should receive it.
Because legally admissible documentation really doesn't matter... UNTIL IT DOES.
VictimsVoice is the only legally admissible documentation tool built to help record court-worthy evidence. While it is typically used in long-term abuses (domestic violence, stalking, etc.), it is the perfect tool to securely and privately store your report until you are ready to take action.
Our processes for collecting information, sending your details securely, and storing them in a way that meets the courts’ chain of custody requirements means that you don’t have to worry about your report falling into the wrong hands.
While there is an annual license fee, we have partnered with organizations (Partner Members) around the country that will provide you with a free one-year license. To find a partner member, click on the button to the right.
