Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization and leading authority on sexual violence. RAINN is a dynamic organization comprised of experts in victim services, public education, public policy, consulting services, and technology. Their team works together to provide best-in-class services for survivors, inform and educate the nation about sexual violence, and improve the public policy and criminal justice response to sexual violence.

RAINN's victim service programs, which include the National Sexual Assault Hotline and, for the Department of Defense, the DoD Safe Helpline, have helped more than 2.7 million survivors and their loved ones.

RAINN's consulting services division works with scores of institutions ... from the top travel and hospitality companies to universities, youth-serving organizations and federal agencies ... helping them improve the way they prevent, and respond to, sexual assault and harassment.
