The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program

 

The Department of the Air Force promotes sensitive care and confidential reporting for victims of sexual harassment/assault and accountability for those who commit these crimes. The SAPR Program reinforces the Air Force’s commitment to prevent and appropriately respond to sexual harassment and sexual assault.  Through education, we empower Airmen to serve as catalysts for attitude and behavior change, fostering an environment that cultivates a culture of dignity, mutual respect, and trust.  When sexual harassment or a sexual assault does occur, it’s the SAPR Program’s goal to provide exemplary support throughout the duration of the reporting process and recovery. 

If you have been sexually harassed or sexually assaulted, please call the Moody SAPR Program’s 24/7 SARC Response Helpline at 229-257-7272 (SARC). After you contact the SARC office, you may be assigned a trained Victim Advocate who will explain reporting options and resources. It is your option to accept or decline any victim advocacy services.  Help is just a phone call away.

LET'S DEFINE IT!

Sexual Harassment: Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment, (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual, or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. 

Sexual Assault: Intentional sexual contact characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation, or abuse of authority, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. The term includes a broad category of sexual offenses consisting of the following specific Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) offenses: rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual contact, abusive sexual contact, forcible sodomy (forced oral or anal sex), or attempts to commit any of these acts. Sexual assault can occur without regard to gender or spousal relationship or age of victim. 

Consent: Overt words or acts indicating a freely given agreement to the present sexual activity by a competent person. An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent. Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission resulting from the accused’s use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent. A current or previous dating relationship or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute consent. There is no consent where the person is sleeping or incapacitated, such as due to age, alcohol or drugs, or mental incapacity.

retaliation

Experiencing retaliation after reporting a sexual assault can be as traumatic as the assault itself.  It takes courage to make a sexual assault report and to share what happened to you with others.  No one deserves to experience retaliation for reporting, and there are legal measures in place to support and protect you if this has occurred or is still occurring. Find out more information about retaliation.
