These four episodes are part of a series on housing for prevention that we co-created with the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence. Our organizations collaborate on an initiative that supports advocates in meeting the housing needs of survivors. And, in reflecting on that work together, we became eager to talk about the ways that housing is also a tool for preventing violence.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month calls attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and impacts every person in the community. SAAM aims to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on how to prevent it.
NSVRC is committed to continuing the ongoing conversation about racial equity in the sexual violence movement. For the theme of this issue of The Resource, we emphasize that racism, and all forms of oppression, are inextricably tied to sexual violence. Racial equity must be at the forefront of our efforts to respond to and prevent sexual harassment, assault, and abuse.
