CCASA Statement Against Racism
August 14th, 2017
The CCASA board and staff unequivocally stand against racism. Sexual assault and oppression are intricately linked and we are committed to grappling with the complexities of societal power and privilege. We cannot end sexual violence without addressing other forms of violence and oppression that support systems that value some lives above others.
