Founded in 1997, Equalogy, inc., a nonprofit organization, has been dedicated to expanding awareness and promoting social change around issues of equality. Members of Equalogy have over 80 years of combined experience in the sexual assault field, and have direct experience working in a rape crisis center.
Through the years, we have been recognized for producing innovative education programs, many of which have served as state and national models. These include dating violence and acquaintance rape awareness programs for colleges (1992) and high schools (1988) and a child sexual assault awareness program for elementary schools (1984). Staff have staged mock rape trials, written award-winning scripts, taught creative drama in schools and created several children’s theatre programs. We consulted on the script for Heart on a Chain, an award-winning video aimed at educating teenage boys about dating violence, as well as on scripts for videos dealing with acquaintance rape, sexual harassment in schools and the shelter experience for children.
We have developed and conducted trainings for medical professionals, social service workers, teachers, the clergy, and law enforcement and criminal justice personnel. Other model projects have included rural outreach, medical advocacy, working with incarcerated battered women and protecting older battered women.
Equalogy’s staff have experience in every facet of nonprofit and feminist management. We have been involved in starting and directing a battered women’s shelter/rape crisis center, community organizing, purchasing and renovating a new facility, founding a professional theatre company, serving in leadership roles in state coalitions, teaching and curriculum development, and diversity training.
