The news in 2020 has been fast and furious.
In January and February, the world watched as Harvey Weinstein stood trial for (and was convicted on) multiple counts of sexual assault.
By March, our worlds were turned upside down by the coronavirus crisis.

At the same time, these events can be better understood by learning from victims, survivors, and service providers. Therefore, our team has been focused on trying to bring victim-focused research into local and national conversations.
