Government & Policy

The New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault advocates for state and federal laws and policies that are survivor-centered, encourage just and compassionate treatment for survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones, and work towards the elimination of sexual violence.

We testify before the NJ State Legislature, track bills in NJ and nationally, and sit on both the Governor’s Advisory Council Against Sexual Assault and the New Jersey Domestic Violence Advisory Council.

We work closely with policy-makers in the legislature and administrative agencies as well as with other organizations. We are part of the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, which advocates for survivor-centered policies on the federal level.
