5 Sexual Violence Prevention Tips for Communities

Individuals who take steps to prevent sexual violence have a big impact, but a community’s unified efforts can have even greater power to create change. When a community collaborates to prevent sexual violence, they are doing community level prevention.

Community level prevention is about bringing entire communities together to create the largest positive impact and implementing changes that benefit the larger community—not just a single individual or small group. The goal of community level prevention is to shift overall environments, policies, and culture to be more equitable, inclusive, safe, and thriving for all.

There are many ways that communities can work together to prevent sexual violence. The strategies below aim to prevent sexual violence and other forms of violence from happening within larger community settings. We all have a role to play in prevention—choose an activity and bring your community together!
