Legal Aid for Survivors of Sexual Assault (LASSA)

The Legal Aid for Survivors of Sexual Assault (LASSA) network serves every Texas county, providing survivors of sexual assault with a wide range of free legal services from general advice to holistic, direct representation in civil legal matters stemming from the sexual assault.

Survivors’ legal problems can include: privacy violations, physical safety threats, school accommodations, employment sanctions, financial problems, housing problems, and immigration consequences.

The initiative was made possible through $10 million in funding from the 84th Session of the Texas Legislature for the 2015-2017 biennium. These funds come from a tax on sexually oriented businesses intended to generate revenue that will, in part, underwrite programs to aid victims of sexual assault. The funds are distributed by the Texas Access to Justice Foundation to grantees across the state.
