Making No Report

Individuals have the right not to make a report to anyone. MCLA, however, strongly encourages individuals to seek medical attention, counseling, and support. Individuals are always welcome to file a report at a later date, but please note a delay in reporting could weaken the evidence necessary to determine whether the accused is fond responsible for committing an act of sexual violence, sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking or retaliation.
