GLSAPC dissolving, giving way to new effort

The Greater Lafayette Sexual Assault Prevention Coalition is shutting down. A post on the Coalition’s blog states that board members feel the original purposes of the organization are being well-managed by other agencies.

Instead, the Sexual Violence Task Force organized through the YWCA has been created. Its goal is to have community partners come together to more effectively share information and resources that are available.

The group is working to develop a comprehensive website and other informational documents.

GLSAPC Executive Director Karah Rawlings confirmed the move. She says the Coalition is transitioning its existing programs to the other agencies and there is no set end date for the organization.

GLSAPC was founded in 1997 with a mission "to promote, advocate and educate for the prevention and treatment of rape, sexual assault and child sexual abuse through collaboration with community partners, which include local law enforcement, medical personnel, judicial representatives, children’s services, area universities, counselors, clergy, community agencies and interested citizens."
