The Blue Bench (formerly RAAP) is metropolitan Denver’s only comprehensive sexual assault prevention and support center. Since our founding in 1983 we’ve worked tirelessly to eliminate sexual assault and diminish the impact it has on individuals, their loved ones and our community.

WE ARE A CATALYST FOR CHANGE.
