High-profile cases in the media are an important opportunity to educate the public about the realities of sexual assault. Specifics of each case are different, but our role as advocates is always to support survivors and help everyone understand sexual violence. These talking points were created to assist in those discussions.

The 2014 Fall & Winter edition of The Resource celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act.

Vice President Joe Biden recently deemed VAWA his “proudest legislative achievement.” In an article inside this issue, a legal advocate gives an inside look at what it was like to work on the second iteration of the landmark legislation in 1998.

Other topics covered in this issue include:

Primary prevention: It’s for everyone, so how can we make getting started more accessible?

Community Voices: We asked members of the anti-sexual violence movement to tell us their favorite ways to practice self-care.

Racism: Becoming an anti-racist organization is a process; let’s begin.

Evaluation: It’s important to evaluate our prevention work. But how can we do that effectively?
