Support CALCASA on Giving Tuesday

0 comments

On November 27, 2018, CALCASA is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Giving Tuesday promotes collective action in the spirit of giving on one day – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the united states. We ask our partners, allies, and our community to participate and choose to support CALCASA so that we can continue our prevention, policy, and advocacy work that isn’t funded by our grant programs.

We are at a moment where national attention on sexual violence has moved survivors to come forward, and the demand for culture and policy change are greater than ever. For decades CALCASA has worked to support survivors and end sexual violence. Our member rape crisis center programs continue to provide crisis intervention and work on prevention in their communities.

CALCASA does not provide direct services to survivors and instead works at the state and national level to end sexual violence through prevention, policy, and advocacy.  We know that sexual violence is preventable and we work to change the attitudes that allow sexual misconduct, harassment, and abuse to exist. We educate and work with policymakers to develop approaches that empower survivors and promote prevention. CALCASA advocates for critical survivor resources provided by local and statewide service providers. And we work with systems to promote approaches that uplift and respect survivors.

This year CALCASA has set a goal of raising $20,000, as we gear up for Nov. 27 we encourage everyone to:

  • Spread the word about #GivingTuesday
  • Join CALCASA’s campaign this year and contribute to our goal
  • Share why you give, and why #GivingTuesday is important to you
