        About The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault

        WCASA's mission is to create the social change necessary to end sexual violence.

        WCASA is a membership agency comprised of organizations and individuals working to end sexual violence in Wisconsin. Among these are the 50 sexual assault service provider (SASP) agencies throughout the state that offer support, advocacy and information to victims of sexual assault and their families.

        WCASA works to ensure that every victim in Wisconsin gets the support and care they need. WCASA also works to create the social change necessary to ensure a future where no child, woman or man is ever sexually violated again.

        WCASA works to support our members by providing:

        • Technical Assistance on issues related to sexual assault, including program development, legal advocacy, policy development, public education and victim and offender dynamics.
        • Educational programming, including opportunities for training and conferencing.
        • An extensive resource center covering all aspects of sexual assault.

        In addition, WCASA works to provide the social change necessary to end sexual violence through:

        • Curriculum designed to promote anti-violence and respect in the K-12 school system.
        • Statewide awareness events intended to promote public education of sexual assault.
        • Parents' guides which help parents talk to their kids about sexual assault.
        • Legislative initiatives designed to improve the legal system to benefit victims of sexual assault and other violent crimes.

        WCASA offers information and referral on any issue related to sexual violence. We do not offer direct services to victim/survivors of sexual violence, however we can connect you to a local agency that does. Also, WCASA cannot offer legal advice and no information obtained from The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault, Inc. can be considered legal advice.

        The WCASA office is located at: 2801 West Beltline Highway, Suite 202, Madison, WI 53713. See map.
