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.

In 2018, the Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF) expanded its commitment to end domestic violence by focusing on root causes of violence and supporting communities in preventing domestic violence. In this web conference, participants will hear from practitioners and advocates from two community partnerships in California, supported by BSCF, who are building their capacity to implement culturally-rooted prevention strategies.
