Survivors and Allies events are held to bring Wisconsin survivors and their allies together so they may network and discuss new developments in the sexual assault movement. It is important to make the connection between the two groups. The purpose of the meeting is to provide survivors with opportunities to voice their concerns and suggestions about current issues that the sexual assault movement is facing.
Also join us for:
- 4/1 @ 2:00pm: The 6th Annual Wrap Around the Capitol, happening at the Capitol Building across the street from the Madison Concourse immediately following Survivors & Allies.
- 3/31 @ 7:05pm: WCASA's WCASA's Madison Capitols (hockey) fundraiser. Perfect for those who are staying the night before Survivors and Allies. Come and socialize, watch the game and help raise funds for survivors!
