Dear Astorians!

On behalf of the Mount Sinai Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention (SAVI) Program, I wanted to invite you to join us in eradicating sexual and intimate partner violence from our communities. New York City needs you!

By joining our roster of volunteer Emergency Department (ED) Advocates it is possible to have an impact.


ED Advocates are trained to provide support and advocacy for survivors in emergency departments, so they don’t have to face the difficult decisions, emotions and follow-up procedures alone. SAVI ED Advocates helped more than 500 survivors in New York City Emergency Departments last yearthat’s almost 2 survivors a day!


We hope you or someone you know may be interested in becoming a Volunteer Emergency Department Advocate. [Click here] more information about our program and its requirements & feel free to print, post and pass this on! Those interested should call (212) 423-2151 or email savi@mssm.edu for the next steps. Interviews will be held from July – October and those accepted into the program will begin training in mid-October.

More information is also available at our website: please visit www.mssm.edu/savi.
Thank you so much for your help and we hope to hear from you!
