The Sexualized Assault Response Team (SART) is a group of service providers that support victims of sexualized assault. SART provides support that:

  • focuses on the victim's needs, concerns and rights – it's the victim's choice;
  • is positive – victim's should feel dignified and respected by service providers;
  • is trauma-informed; victim's lived experience will always be considered;
  • takes into account the social realities and barriers in the Yukon, as well as the impact of colonization on Yukon First Nations people;
  • acknowledges that sexualized assault is a form of gender-based violence; and
  • recognizes that certain groups are more at risk of sexualized violence, including:
    • women;
    • youth;
    • Indigenous people;
    • 2SLGBTQ+ people;
    • people with disabilities; and
    • seniors.
