Scott Berkowitz is the founder and president of RAINN, America’s largest anti-sexual assault organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE

In addition, RAINN educates more than 130 million Americans a year about sexual assault and leads national efforts to improve services to victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.

Recognizing RAINN’s effectiveness, efficiency and professionalism, Worth magazine selected RAINN as one of “America’s 100 Best Charities.”
