Sexual violence is deeply ingrained in the culture of our communities. There are several ways to think about preventing sexual violence:
Many people in our community are perpetrators of sexual violence and all people need the skills to intervene when sexual violence is occurring, or to protect ourselves and others;
Many people in our community have thoughts and behaviors that contribute to a culture that allows sexual violence to occur and all people need the knowledge and skills to recognize and modify those thoughts and behaviors in ourselves and others;
Many of our cultural thoughts and behaviors continue to raise our children to become perpetrators of sexual violence and all people need the knowledge and skills to raise a healthy community (primary prevention).
SACT is eager for opportunities that support all forms of sexual violence prevention. Primary prevention work is key to reaching our ultimate goal of a community free of sexual violence.
