Sexual Assault Demonstration Initiative - Publications and E-Learning Tools

As originally published by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, the Sexual Assault Demonstration Initiative (SADI), the first large scale project of its kind, was created to enhance sexual assault outreach, services, and community partnerships in dual/multi-service programs. Six sites across the nation engaged in a four-­year process of assessment, planning, and implementation of new and enhanced services and organizational capacity building. The materials that were developed based on the lessons learned across project sites can be found at, many of which are avaiable in English and Spanish.

Topics include:

  • - Foundations of Advocacy
  • - Culturally Relevant Services for Tribal Communities and Communities of Color
  • - Picturing Your Program: Planning for Organizational Growth
  • - Listening to Survivors - Essential Steps for the Intake Process
  • - Comprehensive Services for Survivors of Sexual Violence

  • - Building Cultures of Care
  • - Listening to Our Communities: Assessment Toolkit
