Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence (The Alliance) is a statewide alliance of individual sexual assault crisis programs. The Alliance works to end sexual violence through victim assistance, community education, and public policy advocacy.
The mission of Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence is to create communities free of sexual violence and to provide culturally affirming, trauma-informed advocacy, prevention, and intervention services centered on the voices of survivors. The Alliance envisions and hopes to create a world in which everyone believes sexual violence is a preventable problem and actively plays a role in ending it.
In carrying out our mission and pursuing our vision, The Alliance is guided by the following core values: victim-centered decision-making, empowerment, compassion and empathy, accessibility and choice, diversity and inclusion, intersectionality, dignity and respect, safety and confidentiality, wellness and self-care, integrity and accountability, collaboration and partnership, and community-building and engagement.
