Join the movement to end sexual violence
The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA) is a membership agency comprised of organizations and individuals working to end sexual assault in Wisconsin. In 2016, WCASA members voted to shift to a hybrid community membership organization, including: Sexual Assault Service Providers (SASPs) and Allies. SASPs are agencies providing core sexual assault services; Allies are individuals and businesses who support WCASA’s work. This change also simplified membership to only include SASPs as voting members.
In 2019, based on feedback from partners, WCASA made the decision to build flexibility into this model, no longer requiring SASPs to provide all seven of the core services. This decision is important for a variety of reasons, including: it is more representative of the diverse needs of survivors; it is more inclusive of all the types of programs serving survivors; it is more equitable for smaller programs, who are not funded to provide all services. Most importantly, it is reflective of our commitment to center survivors (and the programs who serve them) from historically marginalized communities.
As a member of WCASA, you assure that you support the vision, mission and foundation of WCASA:
- Vision: A socially just world in which all people value equity and healthy sexuality;
- Mission: To create the social change necessary to end sexual violence;
- Foundation: To end sexual violence, we must also end all forms of oppression
