Victims are being turned away, the innocent are being falsely accused, and families are being harmed. At the heart of the problem is a legal system that has created broad definitions, weakened due process, and removed the presumption of innocence. SAVE — Stop Abusive and Violent Environments — is working for evidence-based solutions to end sexual assault and domestic violence. SAVE believes that effective and just solutions to these problems require consideration of the legitimate needs of all parties, including complainants and the accused. SAVE partners with the Center for Prosecutor Integrity on selected projects involving the criminal justice system.
SAVE sponsors these interest groups:
- Victims and survivors
- Persons falsely accused of abuse or sexual assault
- Domestic Violence Legislative Project
- Campus Justice Coalition
