National Sexual Assault Conference 2023: Measuring Love as Prevention
The 2023 National Sexual Assault Conference® was held in San Francisco, California, August 22-24. The conference theme, Equity in Action, called for conference participants to fearlessly pursue a world free from sexual violence and address change across systems and institutions. This session was part of the Prevention track, sponsored by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center with funding from the Centers for Disease Control Prevention.

In this session, Audrey Jordan and Shiree Teng explore how we face and accept our bright and shadow sides more fully, more deeply and more honestly, as many of us have been harmed and have caused harm. We challenge ourselves into more wholeness by facing our grief and pain so that we may minimize hurtling our pain unconsciously toward others.
