In our second podcast, we speak with friends from RISE SLO. RISE—Respect Inspire Support Empower—envisions a world free from sexual and intimate partner violence. Join us as we speak with Christina Kaviani, Director of Education and Communications and Stacy Salame, Director of Development and Marketing and understand the difference they’re making in our community. Hear why sexual assault and intimate partner violence affect the entire community and not just its immediate victims, how COVID-19 has impacted their work, and why the pandemic has led to an uptick in the number of intimate partner violence calls.







RISE believes that people have a basic human right to live free of intimate partner and sexual violence. Advocacy, education, prevention and public policy are the keys to social change. We encourage the community to take a stand and RISE with us to create a world free of sexual assault and intimate partner violence.

As a nonprofit organization that serves both victims of intimate partner violence and sexual assault/abuse and their loved ones, RISE provides comprehensive programs, services and resources to the community.

The tagline of RISE - Respect. Inspire. Support. Empower. - embodies the work of RISE. We believe that RESPECT is the cornerstone to ending violence and creating peace. We strive to INSPIRE the community to be active in the movement to end gender-based violence. We SUPPORT loved ones of those affected by sexual assault/abuse and intimate partner violence and we EMPOWER victims to heal from trauma and transform their lives.
