Building Blocks of A Connected Community

Building Blocks of A Connected Community

This resource explores what the building blocks of a connected community are and how these connections protect against the risk of sexual violence.

Developed as a part of NSVRC's Building Connected Communties campaign for Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2024, this resource provides examples of what community-level prevention can look like. Community-level prevention means making changes to larger-level factors and conditions to reduce the likelihood that people will perpetrate sexual violence. These broader conditions that can impact an entire community include the physical environment and surroundings, predominant community attitudes, norms, standards, and policies and rules such as a code of conduct.
