NCCASA believes that education is one of the essential components to preventing sexual violence. Our current sexual violence educational opportunities include the following:
- The Statewide Campus Consortium
- Sexual Assault Awareness Month Toolkit
- The Training Institute
The Statewide Campus Consortium is designed to address the needs of survivors of sexual violence on college and university campuses.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Nationwide, communities come together to remember the courage of sexual assault survivors, honor our accomplishments as a movement and rededicate ourselves to ending sexual violence in our communities. The purpose of the packet is to provide resources and suggestions for organizing activities and programs in April and throughout the year.
The Training Institute organizes and sponsors statewide trainings on sexual violence, victim advocacy, and primary prevention. The Training Institute utilizes expert trainers from NCCASA staff, local rape crisis/domestic violence programs, allied partners, and state and national presenters.
NCCASA advocates for the rights of survivors of sexual violence and for those individuals and organizations that assist survivors.
NCCASA understands that by working with our elected representatives we can create new laws to combat sexual violence. We work with elected officials at the state and federal levels to ensure adequate funding for sexual assault response programs, victims’ rights, and offender accountability. With input from our legislative committee, each year we develop a comprehensive legislative agenda to meet the needs of our members.
