In 2010, as part of the prevention work in New Jersey, the New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault, in partnership with Media Literacy Project, created a custom media literacy curriculum for sexual violence prevention.  At the 2013 National Sexual Assault Conference, Jyoti Venketraman from NJCASA and Andrea Quijada from Media Literacy Project presented a session about the curriculum, exploring media literacy as a strategy for prevention.  In the following podcast, they review the content of that session, discussing the use of media literacy as a strategy for prevention, with a focus on the NJCASA curriculum.
