For over 30 years, the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MECASA) has represented and served Maine's sexual violence service providers. MECASA works toward ending sexual violence by providing public policy advocacy, assistance to Maine's sexual violence service providers, public awareness and prevention activities, and statewide training.
Our efforts include:
- Initiating and advocating for victim-centered public policy;
- Providing support and assistance to Maine's sexual violence service providers and serving as a liaison between the centers and our statewide and national partners;
- Reducing common myths and misperceptions about sexual violence through building and sustaining public awareness; and
- Providing expert training, statistics, and resources about sexual violence to organizations, groups, and individuals throughout the state.
