About TAASA

Mission Statement

The Texas Association Against Sexual Assault is committed to ending sexual violence in Texas through education, prevention, and advocacy. In the meantime, we desire to support survivors on their paths to hope, healing, and justice. TAASA is the voice of the sexual assault movement in Texas. We are a unifying force bringing together parties involved in and affected by sexual assault as a catalyst for change.

Vision

TAASA’s vision is to advocate for a Texas free from sexual violence. We envision safe, healthy communities across Texas–where no one is burdened by the far-reaching effects of sexual violence.

History

The Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA) is the statewide organization committed to ending sexual violence in Texas. A non-profit educational and advocacy organization based in Austin, TAASA member agencies comprise a statewide network of more than 80 crisis centers that serve rural as well as metropolitan areas. Founded in 1982, the agency has a strong record of success in community education, legal services, youth outreach, law enforcement training, legislative advocacy, and curricula and materials development.

About this Website

Our agency is not a rape crisis center or direct services provider; however, we want to make sure that web users have the most current information about sexual assault. Every state has a non-profit, sexual assault coalition that thrives on the involvement and education of its communities. The purpose of this site is to share resources that implement TAASA’s statewide involvement in Texas.
