CounterQuo

CounterQuo began as a series of discussions between the Victim Rights Law Center and The Voices and Faces Project, discussions that considered how the rights and representations of sexual violence survivors are impacted by law, media and the public engagement of survivors. We seek to develop a blueprint for challenging the way that our culture responds to sexual violence -- and a system of accountability for those who will be charged with executing such a plan. Our goal is to foster new alliances and information sharing between anti-violence leaders from the worlds of advocacy, law, media, public health and the academy.
