Letter from the CEO

Our vision for the Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking is that it’s a nationally recognized and trusted leader in shifting culture, supporting survivors, and strengthening communities to prevent and end sexual assault and human trafficking. We are working toward achieving the vision through four program areas:

  • Victim Services Capacity Building;
  • Prevention and Education;
  • Training, and;
  • Research, Evaluation and Policy.

In partnership with dedicated sexual assault and human trafficking advocates across the spectrum of services, we are increasing the number of Rape Crisis Centers and Sexual Assault Response Teams; coordinating the Indiana Protection for Abused and Trafficked Humans Task Force (IPATH); engaging college men as allies in ending sexual assault through the Speak Up Speak Out Project and college students and communities in the bystander intervention curriculum and social media campaign StepIn; offering multiple trainings opportunities each year including our statewide conference, topical trainings and CORE 40 and through policy work to strengthen sexual assault and human trafficking legislation and funding.

Across all programs, ICESAHT works toward three objectives: leading collaboration, fostering consistency, and demonstrating best practice. These objectives are at core of who we are. Since we opened the doors, five years ago, we have been determined to create a comprehensive statewide approach in preventing and responding to sexual assault and human trafficking that is victim centered, trauma informed and culturally competent.

I continue to be proud, honored and humbled to work with such a dedicated team determined to ensure that victims have access to the services they need and deserve, perpetrators are held accountable and above all else, working toward the day when sexual assault and human trafficking no longer exist.

Regards,
Tracey Horth Krueger, Chief Executive Officer
