SFU Athletics Listen Believe Empower Campaign

SFU Athletics and the SVSPO want SFU community members who have experienced sexual violence to know that support is available. Our Listen, Believe, Empower April social media campaign explains how to provide support to someone who shares an experience of sexual violence with you.

If you have experienced sexual violence, we want you to know that you are not alone; we are here for you.

SFU’s Sexual Violence Support & Prevention office provides free, confidential support for SFU students and employees. It doesn’t matter where or when the incident took place. Or where you’re currently located. Our case managers will listen without judgment and can help you figure out what works best for you. Our goal is to empower you to choose the kinds of support that you need.

To get in touch with an SVSPO case manager, please visit our Contact Us page.
