Jazzed about Community-Level Change to Prevent Sexual Violence
To build community-level approaches, we have to start with the assets from our communities using this worksheet that we had adapted from Close To Home. In this training I highlighted four community-centered prevention strategies: coalition building, community mobilization, social norms change and policy education.
Two New York prevention programs gave presentation as examples of prevention. Syracuse’s Vera House described their work to engage men in prevention with the White Ribbon Campaign and the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault‘s Project ENVISION.
