Preventing Violence in Our Communities

#MeToo, #TimesUp, and #BelieveSurvivors have dominated the public narrative over the past couple of years, highlighting the long-term impact sexual violence has on survivors. At NJCASA, we strive to create safer communities free of sexual violence and we believe that everyone has a role to play in preventing violence in our communities.

Mental health professionals, athletic leaders, and parents / caring adults all have unique roles in supporting healthy norms that prevent sexual violence. Join us as we work together to create safer spaces for all New Jerseyans!
