This web conference will engage participants in a discussion of popular education as a community mobilization approach rooted in social justice. We will explore the use of popular education in statewide prevention capacity building, in addition to exploring the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault’s (TAASA) support of rape crisis centers in using the methodology themselves. The presenters will explore the benefits and challenges of using this methodology for sexual violence prevention work at both the state and local level.
