When Prevention is Prevented: NSAC Prevention Track Preview

Listen to “When Prevention is Prevented” on Spreaker.

The National Sexual Assault Conference brings together some of the brightest, the most innovative and passionate voices in the movement to end sexual violence. We’re all coming together to talk about how we can move the needs on equity issues to create transformative communities. And the prevention track is at the forefront of all that innovation. From housing justice to radical love, data equity and wading an intense socio-political climate, this track has pretty much everything you could need to innovate your prevention work.

Each week leading up to the National Sexual Assault Conference, we’re sitting down with a different NSAC presenter, highlighting their specialties, what their bringing to the movement to end sexual violence and how they got to where they are.

Our third prevention story takes us to the epicenter of where politics are hitting prevention the hardest, the classroom. 

Organized groups have started weaponizing terms from the anti-sexual violence movement to spread misinformation about the work we do and push us out of the classrooms.

We’re sitting down with Sarah Ferrato, Manager of Sexual Violence Prevention & Public Health Initiatives at the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence, to talk about what they and their colleagues are doing to give preventionists the tools to push back.
