KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs have joined forces with the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault.

The multi-year partnership was announced Wednesday and is intended to “sustain and expand prevention programs in the greater Kansas City area,” according to a new release. MOCSA’s mission is to prevent sexual violence and bring awareness to services for survivors of sexual violence.

Chiefs President Mark Donovan said that MOCSA is a “local leader” in the discussion about healthy relationships.

“We have worked closely with MOCSA in the past and appreciate the relationship and support they have provided us,” Donovan said in the release, “and we are looking forward to working hand-in-hand with MOCSA in local schools to address the need for sexual violence education and prevention in our community.”

Through the partnership, MOCSA will be able to be more visible in area schools and community centers, as well as at public events.

The relationship will formally kick off Nov. 13 at the Abbott, where the Chiefs will hold the eighth annual Chiefs Style Lounge. Proceeds from the event will go toward MOCSA.
