Community Engagement

CAASE commits time, space, and energy to listen to survivors so their experiences and expertise can inform our work and raise public awareness. For example, CAASE invites survivors to guide their work, produces trauma-informed public programming, and collaborates with allies and partners throughout Chicago.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, CAASE and Surviving the Mic are facilitating a weekly online space dedicated to the perspectives, experiences and artistic expressions of survivors of sexual harm. Each one is shaped by what participants want to get out of the virtual gathering and includes a writing prompt. Learn more at https://www.caase.org/event/virtually-together.

Prevention Education

CAASE teaches innovative, evidence-informed, and engaging curriculum across Chicago that empowers students to become active allies in the movement to end gender-based violence.

Participants in CAASE prevention workshops learn to think critically about gender, consent, and boundaries. They’ll also be able to recognize the realities of the commercial sex trade and sex trafficking.

CAASE reaches students in grades 9-12, parents/guardians, school personnel, and professionals in the field. All programs are provided virtually during the pandemic. If you’re interested in bringing CAASE workshops to your school or organization, please see the information at https://www.caase.org/prevention.

Their work includes advocating for survivor-centered legislation on local and state levels, working in coalitions with survivor-leaders and allies to address major systemic issues, meeting with policymakers and elected officials, educating voters on candidates’ positions on issues, and engaging in strategic judicial reforms like amicus briefs.
