REES Community
where you
Respect • Educate • Empower Survivors


REES values relationships and collaboration. We work together with our partners to develop options for survivors that are trauma-informed and survivor-centred. We develop online reporting platforms tailored to the unique needs of survivors in their community, on campus and at work. 

REES values transparency and accountability. Data only matters if we do something with it. We promote leadership on issues relating to sexual violence, advocate for change and continue to create new pathways for engagement.

REES exists to make social change. We are creating new and innovative spaces for survivors to share their stories. Agency, access, and action are fundamental to the work of REES as we broaden the range of choices for survivors and institutions, create increased access to information and promote action in the community, on campus and at work.
