The Alliance to End Sexual Violence in Long-Term Care

The Alliance helps create networks of providers; long-term care residents; individuals with disabilities; and anti-sexual assault, long-term care, and disability advocates who have the ability to create long-term care environments that are respectful and safe.  A primary focus is restoring trust in the system through authentic long-term care system reform and transformation, infused with cultural and disability humility, empowering residents and champions at every level to act against sexual violence.
