Group Fighting Sexual Violence Closes Over Taxes

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ An Indiana group that fights sexual violence has closed indefinitely for failing to pay taxes dating from 2012.
 
The Indianapolis Star reports the Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault suspended its operations June 27. An announcement on its website says contracts, grants and reimbursements for work completed can't be distributed until the taxes are paid.
 
The coalition provides sexual assault victims with guidance and helps connect them with counseling services. It also trains domestic violence shelters about what to discuss with sexual assault victims and the evidence needed for rape kits.
 
It is the only Indiana organization focused solely on victims of sexual assault.
 
Former coalition official Kristen Pulice says she is trying to raise donations so the organization can re-open under new leadership.
 
INCASA board members declined comment.
