Health Equity in Practice Session 1: How social justice issues connect to sexual violence prevention

This is a recording of a previous session hosted in partnership between PreventConnect, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. 

Join PreventConnect, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and experts across the anti-sexual violence field and cross-cutting movements, for a panel discussion about how current social issues like anti-Black and anti-Trans policies are connected to sexual violence prevention.

This workshop will feature guests from state sexual violence coalitions, Rape Prevention Education (RPE) programs and advocates working in intersecting movements. 


  • Gain Deeper understanding understanding of how social justice movements like racial justice and LGBTQIA+ justice intersect with the anti-sexual violence movement.
  • Build foundational knowledge around health equity and sexual violence prevention.
  • Describe core benefits and strategies of how to integrate social justice frameworks into sexual violence prevention. 

This web conference is the first in a five-part web conference series, exploring how the promotion of health equity translates into real-world prevention strategies and organizational policy by building the toolkits of practitioners and their organizations, and offering explicit examples of people putting health equity concepts into practice.
