Sexual violence is a widespread social issue that takes many forms. Because of the breadth of the issue, it’s easy to overlook how other crimes intersect with it.

This year’s campaign is focused on prevention – the slogan boldly declaring prevention is possible! The campaign will include resources to help everyone see their role in preventing sexual violence. The materials listed below will help to ground the concept of prevention by educating individuals, communities, and businesses on practical steps they can take to end sexual violence before it occurs.
