        ALL*

        Overview

        Sexual violence impacts individuals, but its root causes are interwoven throughout our entire culture. Therefore, to eradicate violence, we must all evaluate the prevailing language, attitudes, and cultural beliefs about sex, sexuality, gender, and identity.

        For some victims, the impact of an assault is compounded due to the fact that their very identity presents additional barriers to accessing services or receiving compassionate care and assistance. This is a result of existing biases, stereotypes, and the unwillingness of a dominant culture to examine and change long-standing belief systems.

        What is Systemic Oppression? / ¿Qué es la Opresión Sistemá½±tica?

         

        How We Got Here

        The ALL* Workgroup is a diverse collective of advocates from across the state committed to addressing issues of sexual violence and oppression in Wisconsin. Beginning in 2012, this group has evolved in name and focus, while working to develop and implement a three-year strategic plan (2014-16). 

         

        Who is ALL*?

        Recognizing and understanding the history of oppression, we are committed to anyone and everyone who has ever been, is, or will ever be affected by any form of sexual violence.
