Today, we kicked off the National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC) in Philadelphia, PA. Over 1,700 participants are in attendance, including advocates, prevention educators, campus staff, health care professionals, law enforcement, and more.

We have a great lineup of plenary speakers for NSAC 2019. This morning, the conference started strong by featuring a panel discussion with Tony West, Senior Vice President and Chief Legal Officer of Uber, and Tina Tchen, high-powered lawyer and co-founder of the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund – facilitated by RALIANCE’s Monika Johnson Hostler.
