WEAVE Confidential Advocate
About the Confidential Advocate
The WEAVE confidential advocate is a person available to confidentially support or provide information to students or employees who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, or sexual harassment.
The confidential advocate is not an employee of American River College. The confidential advocate is provided through WEAVE, Sacramento County's primary provider of crisis intervention services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
How Can the Confidential Advocate Help?
The confidential advocate is someone you can share your story with confidentially. She will not report anything to the police or Title IX officer unless you ask her to.
The confidential advocate can:
- Provide emotional support
- Provide information or referrals to on-campus or off-campus resources
- Accompany you to investigations, discipline processes, or hearings

Hello everyone, my name is Andrea Becerra and I'm the new WEAVE Confidential Advocate for all Los Rios campuses. As an advocate I support students that are experiencing or have experienced sexual assault/harassment , domestic violence, or sex trafficking.
In addition to my support services, I am also available for staff trainings and classroom presentations! My goal during these is to engage staff and students in trauma-informed conversations about topics such as domestic violence, sexual assault and consent, healthy vs. unhealthy relationships, and bystander intervention. During these trainings and educational presentations, staff and students will also learn about my role and services as the WEAVE Advocate and what resources I can connect them to.
If you'd be interested a training or presentation, please feel free to email me with your request (topics, class time/duration, and so on) at WEAVE@losrios.edu. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
