Mission, Vision & Values


The mission of the ALLY Foundation is to be an innovative and culture changing force to prevent sexual abuse by advocating for rigorous fact-based research, analysis and practices to significantly improve lives and develop a safe society. 


The vision of the ALLY Foundation is to be recognized as the sexual violence organization of choice in the United States by working to end sexual violence by educating the public and advocating for necessary changes in culture: where information creates more intelligently safe communities and policies help the public and private sector improve the well being of individuals, children and families.
