How is NYSCASA involved in policy work? NYSCASA educates legislators and other policy- and decision-makers about the impacts, including unintended consequences, of existing and proposed policies on sexual assault victims/survivors. NYSCASA responds to requests for feedback about policies and also recommends policies that would improve sexual assault intervention and prevention services.
