Current and Past Legislative Advocacy

Issues We’re Working ON

  • NJCASA supports S2656which requires access to law enforcement disciplinary records as government records and requires such records to be retained for a certain period of time.
  • NJCASA supports legislation that honors and affirms bodily autonomy and closes legal loopholes that allow for non-consensual invasive physical exams. S1771 / A1489 and A3249 / A3250 / S164 work to address this practice in the medical and judiciary setting, respectively, and NJCASA is committed to working with the sponsors to ensure they offer the broadest protections possible. To learn more about NJCASA’s position on this practice in the medical setting see our white paper, and to learn more about our position on the judiciary setting see our full statement.
  • NJCASA is in favor of A2748, which would create criminal penalties for nonconsensually removing a condom or other sexual protective device during sexual activity (commonly known as “stealthing”).
  • NJCASA strenuously opposes proposed changes to federal Title IX requirements, specifically concerning the proposed harsh definition of sexual harassment, change to geography of where schools must respond, and change to the standard of evidence used for deciding cases involving sexual violence.
