Public education is the key to fostering a violence free community. Whether through workshops, presentations, attendance at festivals/events, social media, or social action events. We work with community to proactively respond to the issue of sexual violence by raising awareness, busting myths, changing attitudes that shape rape culture, and empowering our community to take effective action. Some of the ways we accomplish this task through:
- We offer a number of presentations to a range of different groups and organizations.
- We tailor our presentations to the needs of the audience!
Presentations are tailored to the audience, which can include educational institutions, faith-based organizations, businesses, governmental organizations, non-profit organizations, and other community groups.
Some of the topics we provide presentations on include:
- Anti-Human Trafficking for Community
- Anti-Human Trafficking for Service Providers
- Sexual Violence 101
- Healthy/Helpful Relationships for Youth
- Elder Abuse
- WSN Services
