SEEKING SUPPORT?
The Alliance has compiled a number of resources available for survivors, their friends and families, and professionals assisting survivors in New York City.

Evaluations Research

The Alliance believes it is critical to evaluate all aspects of our work to understand whether we are able to achieve our goals towards the impact of ending sexual violence and improving care in NYC. We regularly conduct process evaluations of our trainings and advocacy goals. We also engage in larger evaluation projects to test the effectiveness of prevention and intervention programs and awareness-raising campaigns.

Sexual Assault Yearly Speak Out (SAY SO) 2007 Evaluation

Every year during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the Alliance conducts a full-day speak out in Union Square park aimed at raising awareness around the issue of sexual violence. In 2007, the Alliance evaluated this event. Audience questionnaires, presenter questionnaires and coding of messages from the stage were methods used to determine if the following goals were being met:

Goals:

1. Audience members of the 2007 SAY SO even will hear messages: a) that sexual violence is common, b) that sexual violence has serious consequences for survivors, c) that there resources in the city for survivors and d) that people support those who speak out against sexual violence.

2. After hearing these messages, audience members of the 2007 SAY SO event will: a) think sexual violence is an important problem, b) think that sexual violence is not the victims' fault and c) believe that we can stop sexual violence from occurring.
