Sarah JarvisI was very sad to hear that Sarah Jarvis, the long-time director of Rape Trauma Services in San Mateo County, passed away earlier this year.  Sarah was a long time leader in the field to address and prevent sexual violence.    I first met Sarah over twenty years ago as we were part of a group meeting to explore how to strengthen prevention programs.  When I joined CALCASA it was always a pleasure to get to see Sarah more frequently at statewide and Bay region meetings.
Sarah was passionate about the work to address and prevent sexual violence. She provided a strong foundation for Rape Trauma Services and for the movement to end rape as a whole. I was always inspired by Sarah’s commitment to re-examine our work in order to best improve how we support survivors and to make changes in the community. I will miss Sarah – though I know I will continue to see the legacy of Sarah’s work for years to come.
