            The Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault (ICASA) is a not-for-profit corporation of 29 community-based sexual assault crisis centers working together to end sexual violence. Each center provides 24-hour crisis intervention services, counseling and advocacy for victims of sexual assault and their significant others. Each center presents prevention education programs in Illinois schools and communities. 

Mission Statement - History

Working aggressively to combat rape and sexual assault in all settings has been a priority for this administration. As part of these continued efforts and building on the President’s call to action in 2010, the President and Vice President are convening a meeting today, Jan. 22, of the White House Council on Women and Girls at the Cabinet level along with the council representatives from each agency in the East Room of the White House to examine the progress that has been made and to renew a call to root out abuse wherever it exists and further protect Americans from rape and sexual assault.

"In the wake of all of the recent tragic instances of racial violence across the country, ICASA reaffirms our commitment to our stated mission to work toward the elimination of all forms of oppression. We must work toward creating and maintaining sanctuaries for all people of color within our centers and throughout all of our services. Further, we must be outspoken and active allies against racism in our centers and our communities."
