WE'RE ON A MISSION
The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape is working to eliminate all forms of sexual violence and to advocate for the rights and needs of victims of sexual assault.
The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center are on-site in Bellefonte for the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse trial. PCAR will provide insight and expertise throughout the trial in response to key statements made during courtroom proceedings.
Victims of sexual crimes have been violated in the most intimate, private ways and many experience intense feelings of humiliation and shame about their experiences. These feelings are frequently the reason that so many victims tell NO ONE about what has happened to them. Not family. Not friends. Not police or physicians. And certainly not strangers. In fact, only 12 percent of child sexual abuse is ever reported to the authorities (Hanson, Resnick, Saunders, Kilpatrick & Best, 1999).

It's Saturday morning. A father looks at his son sitting at the kitchen table. He thinks of the world ahead of him and the challenges he will face. The father knows all too well that he will need strength and core values to survive a future of temptations, adversity and opportunities.The father knows he has a responsibility to his son. A responsibility beyond basic needs. A responsibility to teach him what it means to be a man.
