Public Policy

For more than 30 years, WCSAP has been advocating for all survivors of sexual assault, their families and communities on the state and national level. Our staff and members testify before state legislative committees, contact legislators and track bills that affect survivors and communities.

Additionally, the coalition attends meetings of state and national agencies to make the voices of survivors heard in discussions about victim services, sex offenders, the criminal justice system, technology, prevention work and many other issues.

Our membership plays a vital role in guiding our public policy work. We welcome your input, ideas and involvement. Information in this section is updated regularly throughout the year, and weekly during Washington’s legislative session.
