Minnesota Summit to Prevent Sexual Violence report released


Business leaders, faith leaders, government agencies, sports organizations joined sexual violence prevention practitioners to figure out how to prevent sexual violence in their communities. On December 3-4, 2010, over 200 people gathered in St. Paul at the Minnesota Summit to Prevent Sexual Violence.  (See my previous blog on the Summit.) The summary report has just been released highlighting the plans and actions that will be taken in Minnesota as a result of this summit.

PreventConnect attended the summit with its video and audio recorder.  We have recordings of the speakers from the Summit, videos demonstrating the integration of the arts in this work, and an interview with Summit organizers Donna Dunn, Cordelia Anderson and Patty Wetterling describing the Summit’s highlights.
