The New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NJCASA) is a coalition that joins people together in action for the common cause of ending sexual violence and supporting all those whose lives have been affected by it.
Who We Are
The New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NJCASA) is the statewide advocacy and capacity building organization that represents the twenty-one county-based rape crisis centers, and the Rutgers University Office of Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance. NJCASA elevates the voice of sexual violence survivors and service providers by advocating for survivor-centered legislation, training allied professionals, and supporting statewide prevention strategies that work to address and defy the socio-cultural norms that permit and promote rape culture.
Our mission is to promote the compassionate and just treatment of survivors and their loved ones; foster collaborative relationships between community systems; and affect attitudinal and behavioral changes in society as we work toward the elimination of sexual violence against all people. In order to accomplish this, NJCASA focuses their efforts through the following channels:
NJCASA offers regular training through our Training Institute. We focus on issues relevant to New Jersey rape crisis centers and community partners. Read more.
NJCASA supports legislation and state policies that put survivors first and create affirming response systems. We also work with statewide organizations to create a groundswell of support for important current issues. Read more.
We respect all voices and welcome additional collaborative partners who are seeking justice for survivors and are working to end systems of inequality. Interested in collaborating? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our mission is to promote the compassionate and just treatment of survivors and their loved ones.
One of our most valued collaborations is our Campus Consortium. The Consortium is made up of dedicated campus professionals from colleges and universities throughout New Jersey looking to create positive change and eliminate all forms of violence. The Consortium meets quarterly to develop thoughtful responses to timely issues impacting campus communities and create a collection of best practices in sexual assault response, investigation, and prevention on colleges and universities.
