Improving criminal justice for sexual assault
The Sexual Violence Justice Institute (SVJI) is a project of the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA) that promotes justice for victims of sexual violence through collaboration, leadership, training and technical assistance. When cases are investigated and prosecuted effectively, victims can feel more comfortable reporting rape and other sexual violence. That's why SVJI works with teams in communities to increase prosecution and provide a victim-centered response to sexual assault.
