New Promotional / Awareness Video: Break the Silence

A Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) informational video titled “Break the Silence” has recently been released. The video will be available to be used by persons interested in creating a SART and looking to educate other potential members, management, and the community on the value of a SART. Additionally, the video can be used by rural and Native American SARTs to make their respective communities aware of the SART and its ability to increase conviction rates, thus potentially increasing the willingness by victims to prosecute.

While working with communities across the US, especially in rural and Tribal communities to develop SARTs, some of the issues identified as a challenge has been the lack of awareness in their communities about SARTs, the lack of resources available to inform them of the value of developing a SART, and the value to the community of utilizing a SART once developed. This video will aid communities to better meet this need.

Distribution of the video will be aimed at professionals in Indian Country and rural areas interested in starting a SART, recently assigned SART members in Indian Country and in rural areas, and community members served by Indian Country and rural SARTs. SART teams will have access to downloads of the video, which they are welcome to use at community meetings, local cable and broadcast TV stations, etc.

Stated objectives for the video are as follows:

  1. To make potential and recently assigned SART members, and community members, aware of the severity, complexity and impact of sexual assault in Indian Country and rural areas,


  2. To make potential and recently assigned SART members aware of the power of a SART as a victim-centered group of professionals ready and able to seek justice for victims, and


  3. To make potential and recently assigned SART members aware of the SART's benefits to the community.


This video was prepared by the SANE-SART Resource Service through a contract to Kinetic Learning, Inc. under grant number 2009-VF-GX-K011, awarded by the Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.
