Currently VALOR's Training and Technical Assistance lead for Rape Prevention Education programs in California, Sarah Orton (she/her/hers) has been working at the intersections of sexual health, sexual violence education and advocacy since 2014. After completing her degree in Sexuality Studies with an emphasis on Research Methodology in 2011, she went on to pursue volunteer work at reproductive health organizations and eventually landed at community Rape Crisis Centers as a sexual health and sexual violence prevention educator. Since then, Sarah’s work has included nonprofit program management, leading sexual assault crisis intervention and response, systems-based advocacy and reform, training and facilitation, and community organizing. Before VALOR, Sarah provided direct service advocacy to survivors of sexual assault at University of California, Berkley. She is a firm believer in the power of sex positive culture, social justice and community-based responses to end sexual violence.
