The Alliance has compiled a number of resources available for survivors, their friends and families, and professionals assisting survivors in New York City.
Sexual Violence Funding Crisis
UPDATE: New York City Alliance staff members and rape crisis providers have started a discussion with the City Council regarding the need to restore sexual violence initiative funding. Check back frequently for progress & updates.
The New York City Council has eliminated all funding to sexual violence victim services and prevention. By doing so, the Council has turned its back on the needs of victims and on prevention programming that is essential for promoting the safety and well-being of all New Yorkers.
The choice to eliminate all funds to sexual violence programming represents just .001% of the city’s $63.1 billion budget.
We must educate our public officials about the critical importance of the victim services, outreach, education and prevention programming that these organizations provide.
