February 3 Webinar Reviews Fundamentals of Public Health, Prevention Approach to Violence

We know how to stop sexual and domestic violence before it starts—by engaging communities in preventing violence, creating safe spaces, and changing the culture from one that accepts and even endorses violence against women to a culture that values health, safety, and equity. For 10 years, Prevention Institute and the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA) have convened prevention experts, advocates, and practitioners to learn together about addressing the root causes of violence. Join us February 3rd for the first installment in our 2016 PreventConnect series.

This webinar will set the groundwork for the 2016 PreventConnect series by covering the fundamentals of a public health approach to preventing violence. Highlighting innovative, promising practices, this introductory web conference will discuss how to use the Spectrum of Prevention to develop comprehensive strategies and share effective approaches to shifting norms and preventing violence.

Over the next seven months,  we will explore a wide range of topics relating to the prevention of sexual and domestic violence, including trauma-informed strategies, situating sexual violence prevention within the broader movement for social justice, engaging youth and community members, and building a more inclusive movement that breaks down gender binaries and moves beyond heteronormative approaches to preventing violence.
