When imagining ways to rebuild and create a new normal since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, centering communities who are most impacted by sexual violence and by COVID-19 is necessary. Join the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and PreventConnect, a project of ValorUS, on this web conference where advocates and activists from Latinx communities and organizations will discuss how they prevent sexual violence during the pandemic and plans for ongoing prevention. This web conference will be offered in Spanish with live English interpretation.
- Describe the importance of culturally-specific approaches to sexual violence prevention that include and go beyond language access
