Turf is not a four-letter word
(12:10 minutes) Effective prevention efforts involve many partners from different sectors, disciplines and organizations. While these partners agree on the end goal of preventing violence against women, many conflicts may arise, including those associated with “turf.” As part of Prevention Connection’s focus on building coalitions and networks, this presentation explores overcoming challenges and negotiating struggles over turf in violence against women partnerships.
This presentation was adapted from the “Turf is Not a Four-Letter Word” web conferences given on May 14 and June 24, 2008.
