The You Have the Right campaign is a public awareness initiative to provide information and education to survivors, loved ones, family, and friends on Colorado’s sexual assault reporting options.

We also have information for victim advocates, law enforcement, mental health practitioners, and medical personnel to assist you in understanding the rights and options available to survivors your role in sexual assault response.

Over the last fifteen years, state and federal laws have developed several reporting options for adult survivors of sexual assault (18-69 years old). This means, if you or a loved one has experienced sexual assault, you have a variety of choices available to you as you consider how you would like to proceed.

Deciding what to do after a sexual assault can be scary and overwhelming. This website is intended to help simplify your options and provide you with resources promoting your safety, justice, and healing. It includes specific information to Colorado, including advocacy services, medical forensic exam programs, and other supportive resources. We hope this information will assist you as you think about what you would like to do next.
