When the only state funding for providing sexual assault services in Wisconsin was cut by 45%, Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA) helped lobby, which resulted in a 15% reinstatement of funding. WCASA will continue to lobby for full reinstatement of that money.
Despite the cuts, WCASA last year:
• Provided training about sexual violence to over 1000 advocates, community members, nurses, and prosecutors
• Provided much-needed technical assistance and training to 46 Rape Crisis Centers in Wisconsin so they could enhance services to survivors
