Welcome to PCAR/NSVRC Social Community! The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape is the oldest state anti-sexual violence coalition in the U.S., and works to eliminate sexual violence and advocate for the rights and needs of victims of sexual assault. PCAR — founded in 1975 — funds and supports the work of 50 rape crisis centers that serve victims of all ages in Pennsylvania's 67 counties. PCAR provides resources and training on sexual assault-related issues to professionals across the Commonwealth and the country, and promotes public policy to provide legal protections for victims and enhance public safety. In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) selected PCAR to house the National Sexual Violence Resource Center to develop resources, build collaborative networks and provide national leadership to end sexual violence.
