Prevention Programs

Prevention isn’t about stopping violence before it occurs to one individual, it’s about changing the systems and social norms that allow violence to continue to be perpetuated toward so many people.

Featured Workshop: Sustaining Ourselves, Sustaining Our Movement

Every day, advocates bear witness to the suffering of others, and this work has a cumulative toll on us individually and collectively. As advocates, we also have our own stories and our own pain - both past and present.

This workshop will create a space to acknowledge the cumulative toll of caring for others and of bearing witness to trauma, and to develop sustainable strategies to care for ourselves and support one another.
