The Resource Newsletter of the National Sexual Violence Resource Center: Fall/Winter 2014

Publish Date
November 2014
Description

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?

There’s even more inside! Want to read about a topic we haven’t covered? Send your idea to resources@nsvrc.org. Thanks for reading.
