Creating social change to end sexual violence.
WCASA promotes change in Wisconsin communities through
education, prevention and public policy work.
Register for the WCASA and End Abuse Legislative Advocacy Day
Registration is now open for the WCASA and End Abuse Legislative Advocacy Day on October 25! We will also offer a virtual prep session on October 17 at 2pm!
Our focus for this event will be on stand-alone legislation that would increase funding for sexual assault and domestic abuse services as proposed by Governor Evers in his 2023-25 Executive Budget. Given the news of significant reductions in VOCA funding next year, this is an extremely important opportunity to keep the importance of funding victims services front and center for members of the Legislature.
Reproductive Health Position Statement
WCASA believes that all people deserve to have authority over their own bodies, whether it is the choice to participate in sexual activity, to use birth control, or to terminate a pregnancy.
Wisconsin Anti-violence Coalitions Announce Launch of Long-Range Plan to Address Sexual and Domestic Violence
American Indians Against Abuse (AIAA), Black and Brown Womyn Power Coalition (BBWPC), End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin (End Abuse), and the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA) announce the launch of the Long Range Plan to address sexual and domestic violence.
The 2023-24 Public Policy Agenda is now available.
The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA) is a hybrid organization: functioning both to
support member Sexual Assault Service Providers (SASPs), while advancing the sexual assault movement in
the state and nationally. We developed this Public Policy Agenda consistent with our vision, mission, and
foundation. However, this is a living document. We encourage legislators, survivors, SASPs, and others to
contact us with other public policy ideas throughout the 2023-2024 legislative session in Wisconsin.
The movement is bigger than WCASA
Thanks to the #MeToo campaign, America is experiencing a watershed moment.
A reckoning has begun, led by survivors and women of color, that calls on all of us to name sexual violence and harassment as unacceptable and intolerable. Now more than ever, the movement needs your help! Join us in shifting the paradigm to support survivors, dismantle oppression, and champion prevention. This is how we end sexual violence.
Just how bad of a problem is sexual assault?
The reality is that we don’t definitively know; the available data can not begin to paint the complete picture of the scope of the problem. Most of the numbers we have reflect only the number of crimes reported to law enforcement. Many crimes go unreported. In partnership with state agencies and the service providers we represent, WCASA is working toward a more comprehensive picture of sexual violence in Wisconsin.
Free Chrystul Kizer
WCASA is in solidarity with local organizers in the Milwaukee community in advocating for the release of Chrystul Kizer.
Chrystul is a sex trafficking victim who has experienced and is living with the impacts of trauma. We ask you join us in the actions to support Chrystul provided by the #FreeChrystul Defense Committee.
