About the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA)
The Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA) provides leadership and resources for sexual assault programs and allies to prevent sexual violence while promoting a comprehensive, socially just response for all victims/survivors. We support, convene, and collaborate with sexual assault programs, advocates, prosecutors, law enforcement officers to promote a more victim-centered response to sexual violence, and increase effective criminal justice. Our prevention programs take action before someone is harmed, and we work with policy makers and elected officials for laws and programs that fight sexual violence.
About the Sexual Violence Justice Institute
The Sexual Violence Justice Institute (SVJI) is a project of the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA) that promotes justice for victims of sexual violence through collaboration, leadership, training and technical assistance. When cases are investigated and prosecuted effectively, victims can feel more comfortable reporting rape and other sexual violence. That's why SVJI works with teams in communities to increase prosecution and provide a victim-centered response to sexual assault.
