Join Up

You have the opportunity to make the most of your CCASA membership by participating in groups and on committees. The specific expertise of our members help CCASA act according to our values of anti-oppression, social change, survivor-centeredness, accountability, collaboration, and respect.

CCASA members and partners who identify as a person of color and who want to create community, raise awareness, and promote practices and policies that recognize the intersections of race, sexual violence, and other forms of oppression are invited to join CCASA’s efforts to increase and sustain leadership opportunities within communities of color. Those interested and committed to change can participate on the CoCA through monthly meetings held the first Thursday of every month via zoom. For more information, email Itzel@ccasa.org or Elaine@ccasa.org.

Restorative & Transformative Justice Learning Community

This Learning Community is for those who work in harm response, harm reduction, advocacy, justice, law, education, and more. Especially those who work directly in gender-based and sexual violence. The purpose of the group is to further individual and collective knowledge of restorative justice and transformative justice practices and their applicability to our field, by sharing resources, ideas, and challenges while building new skills and exploring avenues for applying RJ and TJ in support of survivors. Meetings are held each month on the 3rd Wednesday at 1pm. For more information or to be added to the listserv, contact Casey at casey@ccasa.org.

The SART Group and listserv is for people who are engaging in a coordinated, collaborative effort to address sexual violence within their community. These efforts are often called Sexual Assault Response Teams (SART) or Coordinated Community Responses (CCR) and can exist within a county, judicial district, city, campus, Tribal community, or other jurisdictions and communities. The group shares resources, training opportunities, and troubleshoots issues. Meetings are held each month on the 4th Tuesday from 2:00-3:00pm. For more information, contact Casey at casey@ccasa.org.
