  How has Prevention Connection Impacted Your Work?
Flash Drive Prize

Since 2005, Prevention Connection has provided an online resource on prevention of violence against women. Through its activities, Prevention Connection seeks to bring together a community of practitioners, researchers and funders to advance prevention efforts. We are conducting an online survey to find-out how members of the prevention community have been impacted by our work. This survey should take approximately ten to fifteen minutes to complete, and all responses will be kept confidential.

Click here to take the survey.

As a thank you for participating, one hundred random respondents will receive a 1 GB flash drive with the Prevention Connection logo.
