Partnering to Prevent Violence
MNCASA works to stop violence and harm from ever occurring in the first place. Prevention is essential to build communities that are free from violence, safe, sustainable, and thriving. MNCASA is dedicated to helping communities throughout Minnesota to develop and implement intersectional prevention strategies: from social norms change to public policy to eliminating root causes of sexual violence.
Our prevention team at MNCASA offers technical assistance, trainings, resources, networking, and more on the primary prevention of sexual violence. We aim to provide accessible and tangible prevention tools all while being in community with our member programs, fellow partners, and community organizations.

Community Prevention Partnership Program
Preventing sexual violence is a complex social challenge that requires community-wide investment. The Community Prevention Partnership Program is supported by MNCASA through the Minnesota Office of Justice Programs to act in collaboration with others in their community to prevent violence.
The Messaging Report
We conducted research on sexual violence prevention messaging in 2017 and 2018. The purpose of this research was to test and recommend key messaging for use by those advocating healthy relationships and sexual violence prevention education for children and youth in schools and community settings. This report can be used by organizations and individuals to promote healthy relationships and sexual violence prevention education for children and youth in schools and community settings.
