Do you want to learn to prevent sexual violence and create change?

Cleveland Rape Crisis Center is pleased to present Catalyst for Community Change, a virtual 3-part series about preventing and responding to sexual violence. This series is free and open to the public.

  1. Sexual Violence 101: Learn about the spectrum of sexual violence and how victim blaming perpetuates this issue in our communities. We will discuss trauma, who is impacted by sexual violence, and simple actions steps we can take to create change.
  2. Bystander Intervention: Learn to safely and confidently intervene to prevent harm in a variety of difficult situations. In this session, we will discuss how to utilize the socio-ecological model and overcome barriers in preventing sexual violence.
  3. Consent, Coercion and Boundaries: Gain a thorough understanding of affirmative consent, coercion, and healthy boundaries. We will discuss how to give and gain affirmative consent, practice healthy boundaries, and increase communication between partners.
