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, the New York Governor signed Education Law Article 129-B, otherwise known as Enough is Enough (EIE). Through this law, 52 agencies in NY State, including the Alliance, received automatic funding to conduct services and education to NYS colleges and universities. The Alliance’s Campus Program houses the Campus Training Institute (CTI), which provides training to approximately 12 campus partners on trauma-informed and survivor-centered response services, as well as intersectional community-based primary and secondary prevention work. In addition to CTI, the Campus Program also encompasses three volunteer-based programs to engage students our campus partners.

The Alliance team works under our COVID Safety Policy, that integrates on-site and in-person responsibilities, Alliance leadership and the position supervisor will support the person in this role to prioritize their own safety above all else.
