PEACC stands for Prevention, Education, Advocacy on Campus and in the Community. While PEACC may be located on University of Louisville's campus, the lesson they teach can benefit all of us.
Domestic and sexual violence is a problem that many women (and men) in America face every day. PEACC offers 24/7 help for anyone facing this issue, both a hotline, as well as a step by step instruction guide on what to do when you are the victim of a sexual crime.
