Resources for the Media
Reporting Sexual Assault: A Guide for Journalists is a collaborative project between state agencies, journalists, and professionals in the field of sexual assault. This guide was developed through efforts of the Michigan Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence Media Workgroup.
Working with the Media: A Toolkit for Service Providers is a companion guide for agencies to help educate them about engaging with the media.
The guide assists journalists in accurately and fairly covering incidents of sexual assault in their communities and encourage advocates to cultivate positive media relationships. With the tremendous expansion of communication venues, journalists and advocates are in a unique position to frame the public discussion on sexual assault.
