Committed to Violence Prevention

CAASE is dedicated to holistic violence prevention throughout Chicago and is proud to participate as a Community Affiliate in the Race Against Gun Violence. Our goal is to end violence against women with prevention education for youth; creating attitudes and mindsets that undermine gender disparity, prostitution, sex trafficking and the violence that frequently accompanies these realities.
