Hello Friends and Family!

New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault (The Alliance) has started a gift challenge to raise funds to help stand up against sexual assault and support survivors throughout the city.

Please join our gift challenge today and help us work towards a city free of sexual violence.

You can read more below about how sexual assault and violence are affecting our communities everyday and how the Alliance is helping to prevent and support survivors of sexual assault. You can also read more about the Alliance and our efforts at our website: http://www.svfreenyc.org/.

Sexual Violence is a public health crisis in the United States.

  • 1 in 6 women - and 1 in 33 men - reported experiencing an attempted or completed rape at some time in their lives.
  • 1 in 10 female high students reported having been forced to have sex in a nationwide survey.
  • Upwards of 25% of college women in the United States have experienced an attempted or complete rape during their college career.

These statistics underestimate the problem, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Sexual assault is one of the most underreported crimes in the United States. But there is something you can do about it. Sexual violence is preventable!

How the New York Alliance Against Sexual Assault is taking action:
For more than 11 years, the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault has developed model programs and strategies to reduce the incidences of sexual violence and ensure survivors get the best treatment and care. The Alliance is recognized nationally for our work to prevent sexual violence.

  • We train the doctors and nurses who treat sexual assault survivors in hospital emergency rooms throughout the city.
  • We collaborated with the NYC Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to create a new ambulance routing protocol, directing all sexual violence victims calling “911” to hospitals offering 24/7 specialized services.
  • We organize press conferences, rallies and public events to speak out on behalf of sexual assault survivors, and raise public awareness about sexual violenc.
  • We conduct sv research on the experiences of city youth, immigrant women and emergency room patients; then use the data to advocate for citywide changes in best-practices and policies.
  • We are running a six-year sexual violence prevention project in conjunction with 10 rape crisis programs and local residents in three pilot sites: Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and the South Bronx.
