Alliance Announcements

On May 6th, the U.S. Department of Education released its final rule mandating how
schools and higher education institutions address sexual violence under Title IX. If
allowed to take effect, this rule will make schools more dangerous for all students and
will make it easier for institutions to avoid responsibility for responding to sexual assault and harassment. In the midst of a global pandemic, the Department of Education has given schools just 100 days to adapt their policies, at a time when vulnerable
populations are at greater risk and schools already need to adapt in order to meet this moment. Please click here to read the Alliance’s full statement on the adoption of this Title IX rule.

The Prevention Coordinator-Sr. Coordinator will be responsible for the overall coordination of prevention activities under the NYC Regional Prevention Center – Alliance for Sexual Assault Prevention (ASAP) Program including but not limited to managing Center sexual violence primary prevention initiatives, as well as representing the Alliance at multiple coalitions/partnerships.

May Safe Alliance Meeting

In light of the COVID pandemic we are canceling the May Safe Alliance Meeting where we had planned to address Female Genital Mutilation. Given that many of our Safe Alliance members are currently providing COVID coverage we feel it is best to address this topic at another time. Our next meeting will be in the fall. Hopefully, there will be more clarity with regards to the current situation and we can plan accordingly.

We are thrilled to announce that the Alliance Legal Services Program (ALSP) is now accepting clients. ALSP works to address the critical legal needs of survivors of sexual assault by providing in-house legal consultations, representation, and referrals in issues that may arise in the aftermath of trauma.
