Our program is built around best practices for prevention education

We work on every level of the Spectrum of Prevention from strengthening individual knowledge and skills through classroom-based education, to fostering coalitions and networks through our work on prevention committees, to influencing policies and legislation through our work on the Attorney General’s Sexual Assault Task Force, MEN (Men Engaging NOW), the FVCC Multnomah County Prevention Committee, and our work on the Healthy Teen Relationships Act and the Oregon Workplace Leave Bill.

“One of the ways we can have the greatest impact on survivors is by preventing violence in the first place. That’s why in 2006 we launched what has become our robust Prevention Education Program – which is helping lead these efforts in the community. Through prevention we are able to create a culture shift and get right to the root of the problem.”
