The 2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign encourages communities and individuals to bring healthy sexuality into the conversation on how we connect, respect and prevent sexual violence.
The 2012 SAAM campaign "It's time...to talk about it!" provides tools and resources that focus on promoting positive expressions of sexuality and healthy behaviors. Promoting healthy behaviors encourages sexual interactions and relationships that are consensual, respectful and informed. By starting the conversation, this diologue can build safe, healthy relationships.
Move to End Violence, a program of the NoVo Foundation, set out to learn more about the barriers that prevent people from taking action on the issue of violence against girls and women. Through a series of focus groups and a national survey, NoVo worked with Lake Research Partners to understand how different communities, including those traditionally underserved, overcome these barriers to engage people to get involved in meaningful ways. Then, they worked with Springboard Partners to translate that research into recommendations for action.
Please join Lake Research Partners and Springboard Partners for a webinar to discuss the research findings and introduce the Move to End Violence Research Into Action Guide, a set of practical recommendations you can use in your work to inspire people to take action to end violence against girls and women.
Three leading sexual violence prevention organizations announce the creation of “Raliance,” a collaborative initiative dedicated to ending sexual violence in one generation. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center, the PreventConnect/California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence have joined together to compose the new entity. This significant moment in the prevention movement is being made possible through a multiyear, $10 million commitment from the National Football League – the first-ever major corporate funding of sexual violence prevention initiatives.
An 90 minute informational web conference will be held on Tuesday, July 12 at 10:30am Pacific (11:30am Mountain, 12:30pm Central, and 1:30pm Eastern). The intent of this webinar is to provide the audience with an overview of the grant program to include information about the partnership, eligibility, timeline, new grant management software, funding categories, funding amount available, and eligible and ineligible expenses. This event will be recorded and posted for those not able to attend.

Like all adult survivors of abuse, older adults have a complex set of circumstances and often poor options to consider. Latin@ older survivors may face additional barriers requiring service providers to examine how they are currently delivering services and how their policies and practices may help or hinder an older survivor. During this webinar, presenters will share their experiences and lessons learned as they observed World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Presenters will share available resources for the field to help address elder abuse and promote elder justice. Additionally, they will provide tools developed specifically for Latin@ survivors and their families. Finally, presenters will discuss how the complexity of these situations often requires organizations and communities to work together in new and innovative ways to meet the needs of older survivors. Register now.
