Alliance Announcements

August SAFE Alliance Quarterly Meeting & Training

Join the NYC community of Medical Forensic Examiners to stay connected and strengthen your skills to advance in your profession. This quarter, on August 14, we will tour the Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME). You will see how the lab processes and tests a sexual assault kit and the DNA results that can be generated from them.


Whether you attended the event last Monday evening, joined as a sponsor or host committee member, shared the love on social media, or donated from afar, we are so appreciative. Your help is critical as we build the capacity of our core programs — helping survivors navigate their legal options and healing process, training the professionals who support survivors post-assault, and disrupting the cycle of sexual violence through prevention education and policy advocacy. Photos of the evening are available on our Facebook page if you’d like to check them out. And watch the video of the awardees here!
