CARE serves all survivors, undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, faculty, or alumni. We believe you and we are here for you throughout your healing process. CARE recognizes that there is not a single path or one-size-fits-all approach toward healing that will best serve all survivors or all members of a community. We understand that interpersonal violence frequently intersects with other forms of oppression, creating different circumstances for survivors in various communities, such as BIPOC survivors, LGBTQIA+ survivors, survivors with disabilities and survivors who are men, just to name a few.
Interpersonal violence is a form of violence caused by dynamics of exerting one's power and control over another individual. The systems of privilege in our society such as race, class, ability, and gender are tools used to maintain the power and control over another person and cause them harm. CARE acknowledges that each individual may hold many different intersecting identities that our “Communities we CARE for” pages address. For this reason we encourage all to read through the survivor identity pages that may relate to your own experiences.
