Primary prevention takes center stage in NSVRC SAAM campaign


“Prevent sexual violence…on our campus” serves as the theme for the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) 2010 Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign which focuses on primary prevention.

“The campaign is built around the Spectrum of Prevention framework, developed by Larry Cohen of the Prevention Institute, that places public health problems, including sexual violence, within a larger context, beyond individual behaviors, to highlight the community and societal factors that influence the issue.”

The NSVRC provides a variety of resources specific to campuses working to end sexual violence.

SAAM Day of Action is Tuesday, April 20, 2010
