Survivors and broader communities want the same things – safety in their homes and neighborhoods. Addressing sexual and domestic violence as a community problem can help shift norms away from victim-blaming and promote the role of communities in prevention. This web conference will explore the role of strong social networks, inclusion and community accountability in sexual and domestic violence prevention and highlight innovative local efforts. Join us to discuss how community level efforts to shift norms and practices for responding to incidents can also support prevention.

HOSTS: Ashleigh Klein-Jimenez and Meghna Bhat, PreventConnect and CALCASA
