PreventConnect is a national project of ValorUS, formerly CALCASA, with funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Injury Prevention and Control and RALIANCE. The goal of PreventConnect is to advance the primary prevention of sexual assault and relationship violence by building a community of practice among people who are engaged in such efforts. PreventConnect also builds the capacity of local, state, territorial, national and tribal agencies and organizations to develop, implement and evaluate effective prevention initiatives.
To achieve this goal, PreventConnect uses various forms of online media to connect people and ideas. PreventConnect explores issues and highlights efforts to:
- stop sexual assault and relationship violence before it starts,
- engage communities in preventing sexual assault and relationship violence, and
- build upon the strengths of the rape crisis and domestic violence movements, public health and other prevention efforts to create social change.
