About the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence
We Are Ohio's Rape Crisis and Prevention Coalition
The Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence serves as Ohio’s rape crisis coalition. State sexual assault coalitions serve as the main training and technical assistance provider for rape crisis centers on best practices in programming and administration, and they advocate on behalf of rape crisis centers and the survivors they serve in public policy advocacy efforts at the state and federal levels.
State coalitions also lead statewide public awareness efforts and support local rape crisis centers in engaging with diverse communities, survivors, and service providers in their service areas. At OAESV we provide many services, including training for advocates and preventionists, technical assistance for local programs, systems advocacy, public policy work and much more.
