        Policy & Law


        Policy Program 

        WCASA is Wisconsin’s public policy voice for issues affecting victims of sexual violence and the Sexual Assault Service Providers (SASPs) who serve them.  

        On behalf of our membership, advocates, and the community at large, WCASA works on both the state and federal levels, and in criminal and civil arenas. See WCASA's 2017-2018 Public Policy Agenda to learn more. 

        WCASA engages in direct lobbying regarding these issues, and provides technical assistance to SASPs and concerned citizens who wish to participate in grassroots policy action. See A Guide to Non-Profit Advocacy in Wisconsin (Updated 2017).


        Legal Program 

        The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault works to build the capacity of professionals and systems across Wisconsin to address the legal needs of sexual assault survivors.  This is achieved by: 

        • providing legal technical assistance to professionals who work with survivors of sexual assault; 
        • providing trainings on various legal issues impacting survivors of sexual assault; 
        • creating educational resources
