Affinity Groups

Gender-based violence (sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking and harassment) can impact anyone regardless of age, race, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability status, strength, etc.  However, historically marginalized and oppressed populations tend to experience gender violence at higher rates and often have several special considerations when coping with gender-based violence.

CAPE is dedicated to providing support and advocacy services to all DU community members, including those who identify with a variety of affinity groups.
