Senator Dean Heller
"I commend RAINN for its dedication to provide victims and survivors of sexual assault with the vital services and resources they need and deserve.

There is no place in any society for acts of sexual assault. I am proud to raise awareness on this issue and will continue to work in the Senate advocating for legislation combatting sexual violence and helping survivors of these crimes."

--- Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV)

Sheldon Whitehouse
"Too many Americans fall victim to sexual assault, and all of us must do our part to prevent future attacks and give victims the justice they deserve.  

Last year, I was proud to stand with Chairman Leahy to pass the Violence against Women Reauthorization Act, which supported essential tools for preventing and responding to sexual violence. 

I applaud RAINN for its strong leadership in helping millions of victims and survivors of sexual assault, and I look forward to working with them in the future."

"This report shows that the situation with colleges is indeed bad, but plenty of people never get to go to college, and the risk for them is equal or worse."

"Much of the reform attention has been on the college judicial process, but this data really points out that we cannot focus on that at expense of the criminal justice system, because that would mean abandoning the great many victims who never attend college."

"If someone discloses to you they were a victim of sexual assault, that was a difficult choice for them to make."
