Blog description: Your source for promoting prevention, building awareness and creating campaigns for change.

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. In the past, we’ve highlighted the intersection of sexual assault with domestic violence, but in recognition of National Stalking Awareness Month, we're going to take a look at some of the connections between sexual violence and stalking.

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.
