When I began working in the anti-violence movement 14 years ago, I never imagined I would be sitting here today writing a blog about prevention. But yet, here I am. After years of working in community-based rape crisis programs as a counselor, advocate, educator, and supervisor I had the fortune of coming to work at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. By the third day, I was heavily immersed in the Spectrum of Prevention document. Over the course of the past seven years, I have become a prevention geek. It is my passion, and it gives me hope there can be an end to sexual violence.
My hope is that this blog serves as an information hub and a connection point for those of you doing prevention work at all levels of the spectrum.
Have you ever wondered how preventionists in other states and other communities do their work? What resources they use? How they evaluate their programs?
We’ll connect you with new prevention resources and highlight programs that are taking an innovative approach to prevention.
