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?

The 2014 Spring & Summer edition of The Resource features a cover story on campus sexual assault written by the Clery Center For Security On Campus. The article provides details on recent amendments to the Jeanne Cleary Act and how policy can be used to help protect the well-being of students. In the same vein, The University of Oregon has students talking about consent with its SexPositive cellphone app, which has been downloaded more than 10,000 times.

Other topics covered in this issue include the 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act, how to protect victims’ privacy when electronic evidence is introduced, and a reflection on three years of healthy sexuality as the theme of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
