National Sexual Violence Resource Center


Founded by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape in 2000, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) identifies, develops and disseminates resources regarding all aspects of sexual violence prevention and intervention.

In addition to having the world’s largest special collection library on the topic of sexual violence, NSVRC’s activities include training and technical assistance, referrals, consultation, systems advocacy, capacity-building, integrating research findings with community-based projects, coordinating Sexual Assault Awareness Month, co-sponsoring national conferences and events, and creating web-based and social networking resources.
