Raliance is a collaborative initiative dedicated to ending sexual violence in one generation. As the go-to resource for policymakers, advocates, service providers, prevention practitioners and the media, Raliance boldly and innovatively advances the field nationally. Raliance is comprised of three national sexual violence prevention organizations – the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA)-PreventConnect and the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence (NAESV) - with over 70 years of anti sexual violence activism. Raliance – be the generation that ends sexual violence.

Raliance is building collective power and voice in young activists at ThisGen: Youth Summit. In March 2017 in Washington DC, participants will engage in leadership and learning opportunities that will support young activist efforts to:

Track 1: Use social media and messaging to change public opinion and discourse about gender-based violence

Track 2: Leverage the influence of ‘sports’ and athletes to end gender-based violence

Track 3: Catalyze individuals and communities through community organizing and policy advocacy to end gender-based violence

Raliance has received seed funding from the National Football League (NFL) to coordinate prevention, policy, and messaging efforts; establish a presence in the Washington, DC metro area; and to award grants to advance a variety of promising practices and policies. Raliance is a vehicle for directing new private funding to programs that have demonstrated expertise in addressing and preventing sexual violence. Through its grant program, Raliance will fund promising practices or policies that are replicable and that:

Improve the response to victims of sexual violence

Reduce the likelihood of perpetration of sexual violence; or

Strengthen communities’ capacity to create safe environments

Projects awarded will contribute to the coordinated implementation of a comprehensive initiative to change the culture in one generation by aligning sexual violence services, prevention, messaging, and policy goals; or by contributing to the existing body of evidence and/or promising practices or policies related to sexual violence. Funded projects are those that can be replicated.


Raliance is pleased to announce the first-round of grant awardees. Each of the following 27 grantees will receive funding of up to $50,000 – totaling nearly $1.2 million across all projects – from July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017.
