Public Policy and Legislation

How is NYSCASA involved in policy work? NYSCASA educates legislators and other policy- and decision-makers about the impacts, including unintended consequences, of existing and proposed policies on sexual assault victims/survivors. NYSCASA responds to requests for feedback about policies and also recommends policies that would improve sexual assault intervention and prevention services.

 

Does NYSCASA have a legislative agenda? Our current legislative agenda is outlined below. Please contact Selena Bennett-Chambers at sbennett-chambers@nyscasa.org if you have any questions or comments.
