A New Approach To Encourage Reporting

The Victim Link agency portal works in partnership with the new public-facing site - Seek Then Speak. Together, they break down traditional barriers of shame and fear, so victims can gather information, explore options, and take action through gradual dialogue on a new multi-channel platform (web, phone, or mobile).

Developed in collaboration between Voice, a trusted tech-partner to law enforcement, and End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), America's leading nonprofit organization dedicated to improving criminal justice responses to sexual assault.

Click To Open

Seek Then Speak is a public-facing portal allowing anyone to gather information, explore their options, and connect with resources. When sexual assault victims decide to begin the reporting process, they are transferred directly to Victim Link, which is the subscription tool for victim advocacy organizations, law enforcement agencies, and college campuses. Once they are notified of a victim contact, agency personnel can use Victim Link to review the information and take appropriate action.

Does Victim Link comply with national best practices for sexual assault response?

Victim Link and Seek Then Speak were both developed by Voice in collaboration with End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), the nation’s premier training organization dedicated to improving criminal justice responses to gender-based violence.

In 2015 alone, EVAWI saw more than 3.5 million page views on their website and provided 119,500 hours of training through live conferences, webinars, and the OnLine Training Institute (OLTI).
