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

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 to prevent occurrences of sexual violence, build the capacity of individuals, organizations, and institutions to analyze the impact of sexual violence, and provide them with the skills to develop prevention interventions that best fit the needs of their community. As an NYC Regional Center, the Alliance implements the Alliance for Sexual Assault Prevention Program (ASAP Program) – a multi-county primary prevention initiative that includes two major components:

  1. Project Dream, Own, Tell (DOT) workshops for youth ages 13-21 that focuses on community change strategies to mobilize youth and influential adults in their lives. The focus is on marginalized and underserved communities in NYC that are at high risk of sexual assault.
