The Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault (ICASA) is a not-for-profit corporation of 29 community-based sexual assault crisis centers working together to end sexual violence. Each center provides 24-hour crisis intervention services, counseling and advocacy for victims of sexual assault and their significant others. Each center presents prevention education programs in Illinois schools and communities. 

Mission Statement - History

Survivors, staff from rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters rallied at the Illinois State Capitol on Oct. 1 to ask Gov. Rauner and legislative leaders to meet at the table to resolve the ongoing budget impasse. Please call your legislators and tell them to resolve the budget stalemate!





The state budget impasse has cut off critical funding to rape crisis centers across Illinois. Please donate now to help support these crucial services in our communities.

"In the wake of all of the recent tragic instances of racial violence across the country, ICASA reaffirms our commitment to our stated mission to work toward the elimination of all forms of oppression. We must work toward creating and maintaining sanctuaries for all people of color within our centers and throughout all of our services. Further, we must be outspoken and active allies against racism in our centers and our communities."
