How Callisto Works
Save time-stamped records of an assault
Survivors wait an average of 11 months to report their assault to authorities
Report electronically to the school or police
Less than 10% of survivors will ever report their assault
Report only if another student names the same perpetrator
Up to 90% of assaults are committed by repeat perpetrators
I was raped during the first week of my freshman year, and I can't even count the number of people I know who have been sexually assaulted during their college career. I wish there would've been more education about sexual assault in general as well as reporting options and support services. –Anonymous survivor
Local Natives + Callisto
- One in 5 women and one in 13 men will be sexually assaulted during their college career in the United States.
- Less than 10% will ever report their assault to their school or to the police.
- On average, those who do report wait 11 months.
- 90% of sexual assaults are committed by repeat offenders.
- Only 6% of sexual assaults reported to police end with the assailant spending a single day in prison, meaning that there's a 99% chance that they'll get away with it. This means there is practically no deterrent to sexual assault in the US.
- We could prevent 59% of assaults from ever occurring - just by halting repeat offenders earlier on.
Be Part of the Solution:Through Callisto's partnership with Plus 1 and Local Natives we are able to bring our story to thousands of new supporters like you. Join Callisto, Plus 1 and Local Natives in our mission to support survivors through trauma-informed technology by calling on your college or university to be a part of the solution. Tell us why your school should adopt Callisto in the "Tell Your School Your Story" form at the bottom of this site. If we receive enough emails from alumni and/or students from your alma mater, Callisto will reach out to your college or university.
So many of the ideas you discussed [when describing Callisto] would have made my experience easier to deal with. The problems with reporting were too many for me (especially since it was an acquaintance). Social pressure, shame, fear, confusion on what legal action would mean or if I would succeed--all of those things stopped me and I still wonder what I actions I could or 'should' have taken. - Female survivor, 25
Your contribution to Callisto will help us to create systemic change in the ways that survivors are supported and create a world where sexual assault is rare and unacceptable.
Callisto was made possible thanks to philanthropic contributions from Google.org, NoVo Foundation, Levi Strauss Foundation, and New York Women's Foundation. More than 600 individuals have contributed to Callisto. Callisto is a project of the 501c3 nonprofit organization Sexual Health Innovations.
