    Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance
    Sexual and Domestic Violence Victim Advocates play an invaluable role in helping survivors navigate the justice system. Advocacy includes a broad range of activities pursued on behalf of victims to assure that survivors are informed, competent and effective participants in the legal system and able to safely achieve the remedies they seek. In order to achieve that goal, the primary objectives of Victim Advocates include:
    helping survivors identify the range of options available to help protect their rights and safety;
    assisting survivors in asserting those rights;
    providing a safe space in which survivors may disclose information;
    giving support and encouragement throughout the legal process;
    offering guidance on finding answers when questions arise;
    ensuring that the system response to survivors is as fair and as helpful as possible, and;
    providing continued support when the legal process has concluded.
