Organizational Overview

The New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault (the Alliance) is a non-profit in the city whose mission is to prevent sexual violence and reduce the harm it causes through education, research and advocacy.

 

Background and Role

The Alliance serves all five boroughs and works closely with rape crisis programs, hospitals, District Attorney’s Office, New York City Police Department and city leaders to develop and implement best practices in the treatment of and response to sexual assault survivors.  The Alliance is also a Regional Center for Sexual Assault Prevention, and works within communities, colleges and universities, and nightlife establishments on trainings to prevent occurrences of sexual violence.

 

In 2015, Governor Cuomo passed Education Law Article 129-B, otherwise known as Enough is Enough (EIE). 52 agencies in NY State received automatic funding to conduct services and education to NYS colleges and universities, including the Alliance. The Alliance’s Campus Program houses the Campus Training Institute (CTI), which provides trainings to approximately 15 campus partners on trauma-informed and survivor-centered response services, as well as intersectional community-based primary prevention work.
