If you have found this page to report an incident, please know this: You are not alone. It was not your fault. And you will find a way not only to survive but to thrive. No matter what happened, you did not deserve it. No matter how helpless you feel, you have options.
We created Voices In Action to provide one such option. We understand that it can be hard to know what to do when you’ve been victimized, so we are here to help.
Through this reporting page, we provide a private way for you to document an incident that occurred to you. By reporting an incident on this page, we provide you with a copy of your incident report that bears a timestamp from your email provider, so that you can confidently choose when you’re ready to report to authorities and/or employers. You can also choose to be notified if the person you name as your assailant has been accused by another party of related misconduct.
Step 1: Fill out the incident report below with as much detail as possible about how and when the incident occurred. Because of the sensitivity and serious nature of these reports, if you choose to make a report that we maintain in our matching database, you will be asked to enter your name and driver’s license number for verification and credibility. Your information will never be used, posted, or shared absent a court order.
Step 2: When you click submit, your time stamped report will show in its entirety on the screen. Print and save this report for your records.
Step 3: Check your email. You must use an email account that you know you can access so that you can receive your time stamped, incident report receipt and so that you can be notified in the event that your assailant has been reported by another victim. You will receive a report incident receipt including your username, type of report filed, and the details your listed. For privacy reasons, emails do not include details or the name of the assailant accused. This email exists as a way for you to verify your timestamp, username and report in the event that you follow up with us.
Step 4: A time stamped report of sexual misconduct or discrimination can be a critical piece of evidence should you ever choose to press charges or file a civil suit against your abuser.
