Building a movement for social change
This week I had the opportunity to speak at the North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault‘s 2011 Annual Statewide Conference titled “iLead: Leading Everyday Advocating for a Difference.” In the morning I spoke about Building a Movement for Social Change: Sexual Violence Prevention in Action where I explored the need to change community norms in order to prevent sexual violence. Inspired by examples of leadership for social change (like the sit-ins in Greensboro in 1960), there are many new ways activists are working to prevent sexual violence like Hollaback, V Day and SPARK Summit.
I also lead a workshop on using Web 2.0 technologies. From that discussion, audience members suggested these web sites:
- The Center for Media Literacy
- The Community Tool Box
- That’s Not Cool
- National Institute of Corrections
- Advocates for Youth
- Men Can Stop Rape
