        Media

        Media for journalists

        As a member of the media you have an important role to play in ensuring that survivors’ experiences are accurately told. You are uniquely positioned to help people better understand sexual violence in our society by asking important questions, critiquing and examining the dynamics of power and privilege, and ensuring that the many facets of the issue remain in the public’s eye.

        We understand the reality of a modern, digitally driven, press infrastructure, with deadlines and a public reader/viewership that demands more and more. WCASA, in partnership with 50 sexual assault service providers statewide, and a corps of community groups and volunteers working to end sexual assault in Wisconsin, can provide expertise and technical assistance to help you do your job. We will make every effort to assist you.
         

        Resources

        • The National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), in partnership with the Poynter Institute, have created an online course on Reporting on Sexual Violence. Through a generous contribution by NSVRC, the course is available free. Also, their Media Packet provides journalists with statistics and background information.
