        Join us for the Voices of Courage Awards Luncheon, and Wrap Around the Capitol – Saturday, April 28th, 2012, and Denim Day activities at the Capitol (or around the state) on Wed., April 25th; for more information, see Events.



        Our work encompasses both intervention and prevention. For sexual violence to be eradicated, it must be met with a comprehensive response; this includes interceding where violence is happening to provide safety, support, and resources to those impacted by it (intervention), as well as educational outreach and social climate change which informs behavioral choices people make and precludes sexual violence from occurring in the first place (prevention). We see these activities as two sides of the same coin...


        As with any disease, conflict, or endeavor, it is not enough to meet the challenges head-on–we must be a step ahead of the issue; we must be upstream, investigating the root causes of the issue.

        The sexual assault prevention movement started with intervention–naming the issue, providing support and services to victims and helping them on their journey to being survivors, and with raising the rallying cry out in the streets, in our schools, and in our court system.

        spacer The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA) is a statewide organization incorporated in 1985 to support and complement the work of Wisconsin’s community-based sexual assault service provider programs and other organizations working to end sexual violence. WCASA works in collaboration with communities throughout the state to support existing services to victims/survivors of sexual violence, to plan for the development of new services, to create and support community prevention efforts, and to stimulate community ownership of the issue of sexual violence.
