The Rape Crisis Center is offering an additional support group to address increasing demand following the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation and the ongoing conversation around the #MeToo movement. 

The additional support group is on Wednesday nights from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The new Wednesday night support group is open to survivors of sexual assault or abuse who are 18 years and older. The group is free and no sign up is required. 

Those who would like to participate may simply walk in to The Rape Crisis Center located at 801 S. Rancho, Suite B-2, Las Vegas, NV 89106. 

Suggested arrival time is 5:45 p.m. for the 6:00 p.m. scheduled start time. Interested parties may also call the RCC office at 702-385-2153 with any questions.

The Rape Crisis Center will offer the additional Wednesday night support group through October. At the end of the month, the Rape Crisis Center will evaluate and assess ongoing need to continue the additional Wednesday night group.
