        On January 30, 2017, the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) and WCASA, in conjunction with the Attorney General’s Statewide Sexual Assault Response Team, announced the By Your Side campaign to support survivors of sexual assault. The campaign provides survivors with the opportunity to find information about their rape kits and to connect to local advocacy organizations for support. See above link or call 1-800-446-6564.

        Two New SASP Members in 2017

        WCASA is excited to announce that two more organizations have become official sexual assault service providers (SASPs) in Wisconsin, bringing the total to 54. We congratulate Dove, Inc. and EVOC (End Violence on Campus) at the University of Wisconsin – Madison on reaching this milestone. Dove serves Iron County and parts of Michigan. EVOC serves UW – Madison students.

        The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA) is a statewide organization incorporated in 1985 to support and complement the work of Wisconsin’s community-based sexual assault service provider programs and other organizations working to end sexual violence. WCASA works in collaboration with communities throughout the state to support existing services to victims/survivors of sexual violence, to plan for the development of new services, to create and support community prevention efforts, and to stimulate community ownership of the issue of sexual violence.

        Our work encompasses both intervention and prevention. For sexual violence to be eradicated, it must be met with a comprehensive response; this includes interceding where violence is happening to provide safety, support, and resources to those impacted by it (intervention), as well as educational outreach and social climate change which informs behavioral choices people make and precludes sexual violence from occurring in the first place (prevention). We see these activities as two sides of the same coin.
