Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape
AEquitas partners with the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR) to host the National
Institutes on the Prosecution of Sexual Violence.
Through its partnership with PCAR, AEquitas is better able to identify emerging issues and innovative strategies that affect the
investigation and prosecution of sexual violence. In addition, it is crucial to the development of comprehensive cutting edge resources
and training for prosecutors and allied justice system professionals.
The mission of PCAR is to work to eliminate all forms of sexual violence and to advocate for the rights and needs of victims of sexual
assault. It works at the state and national levels to prevent sexual violence and challenges public attitudes, raises public awareness,
and effects critical changes in public policy, protocols, and responses to sexual violence.
Since 1975, PCAR has been working at the state and national levels to challenge attitudes and raise public awareness to effect critical changes
in public policy, protocols, and responses to sexual violence.
