Enough is Enough Training and Technical Assistance
The Alliance also serves as one of two Training and Technical Assistance Providers for Enough is Enough (EIE) programs operating in New York City, Long Island, and Lower Hudson in partnership with the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NYSCASA). Our TTA Program works closely with programs on an individual level to provide customized training, policy, and programming advice, needs assessments, and educational opportunities. We also work regionally and at state level to increase the representation of the needs and rights of survivors, the programs that serve them, and the communities most affected by sexual violence through technical assistance, training, and advocacy. We provide educational resources, such as toolkits and webinars, designed to increase skills and knowledge of survivors, providers, policymakers, and the public about trends and needs related to innovative programs and best practices in sexual violence prevention and response.
