This report summarizes key findings and theories from PreventConnect's 2017 webinar series, which highlighted ways in which communities are leveraging evidence-based domestic and sexual violence prevention research and connecting that research to local practice. 

This report summarizes the 2017 PreventConnect web conference series that focused on community-level prevention strategies, partnering with other sectors and movements, and how sexual and domestic violence relate to health equity and multiple forms of violence. It draws together high-level themes that unify the series as a whole, and provides key findings from each of the eight web conferences. The report highlights three key themes that emerged over the course of the eight web conferences:

  • Sexual and domestic violence prevention practitioners increasingly operationalize a health equity approach by addressing the root factors of violence and working together with communities to find solutions.
  • Practitioners and advocates continue to improve elements of the sociocultural environment such as norms and social networks, and are expanding their efforts to improve the physical/built environment and economic opportunities.
  • More and more practitioners and advocates are working to change community and organizational norms to make sexual and domestic violence community issues that demand community-wide action.

The report also includes links to the webinar recordings, slideshows, and other helpful resources.
