In Texas, more than 2 million people have been victims of sexual assault. These women, men, and children deserve our support and our undivided attention.

Advocates across Texas are working to provide the needed services to victims so they might heal and find justice. Countless others are involved in social change so we can impact the very conditions that allow sexual violence to thrive. The role at TAASA is a little different although decidedly complimentary to the work of local programs. TAASA strives to be a strong voice for survivors and the hundreds of advocates across our state. TAASA’s work includes building the capacity of rape crisis centers to serve survivors, training first responders, developing curriculum and materials for distribution, and public awareness campaigns however a major responsibility is policy work.

We approach our work in a pragmatic, non-partisan manner because sexual violence touches people everywhere on the political spectrum. Neither party has been exempt from victim-blaming rhetoric, offering uninspired and useless legislation, using the pain of sexual assault as a tool to further their own agenda, or dropping the cause when our limited attention span has moved us to the next big crisis. On the other hand, on occasion elected leaders from both parties have worked tireless to sponsor and pass legislation that is critical to making our communities safer and more responsive to the victims of sexual violence. TAASA must continue to be on the forefront of policy work to assure that beneficial legislation indeed pass and dangerous laws never see the light of day.
Will you help us?

During the month of April we observe Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention. We invite you to invest in our work, to invest in your community, and to invest in your family by making a small donation to help support TAASA’s work in empowering communities to unite in one voice that says, “No More.” Huge Political Action Committees (PACs) influence policy daily but those of us without deep pockets and impressive “connections” often feel powerless to make a change. Together we do have power, influence, passion, and principle. Collectively, even very small contributions can make a big difference. Join us this month by using social media for something in addition to sharing cute animal pictures, pictures of food, and clever quotes. Make a difference today!

*None of this money will be used to support political campaigns of individuals seeking election or re-election.
