Break the Silence.
Stop Sexual Violence.

Note From the Director

A Note from the Director

Welcome to the MS Coalition Against Sexual Assault’s web page.  We are excited to have this resource available to you.  You will have access to educational materials, trainings, information requests and other resources on sexual assault.

The coalition staff is dedicated to increasing public awareness on sexual assault issues as well as educating and supporting the community statewide in our efforts to break the silence and stop the violence.  MCASA wants to equip individuals with the information to make better decisions.  Information is indeed knowledge and knowledge is power.  We can use that power as a voice to break the silence and stop the violence.

MCASA represents the nine rape crisis centers in the state of Mississippi.  We are dedicated to supporting our local programs and educating service providers to become better advocates for victims of rape and sexual assault.  These programs are located in Biloxi, Columbus, Greenville, Hattiesburg, Jackson, Meridian, Natchez, Oxford and Tupelo, MS.  The coalition is only as good as its weakest program; we strive to bring all programs to the same standard of service in their local community and the state.

Executive Director
