In light of the recent remarks made by Presidential nominee Donald Trump, CALCASA is compelled to issue a statement on how sports culture presents an opportunity to prevent sexual violence. 

Click here to view CALCASA’s statement. Additionally, we are please to share a policy brief and supplementary research that has been conducted by Raliance and UC San Diego’s Center on Gender Equity and Health, regarding sports as platform for prevention and culture change. 

We can no longer accept “locker room talk” as an excuse to normalize and perpetuate rape culture.
