Spring 2016 PreventIPV Newsletter: Fostering Community Change

“Connected communities experience less domestic violence. If we improve how and where we live, learn, work, and play and ensure that our environments and relationships support our overall health and wellness, then we can prevent domestic violence.” Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence

It takes a village to prevent intimate partner violence.

Just by living in and moving through your community, you have power to make change. Whether it’s through informal discussions with friends and neighbors, modeling healthy and respectful interactions with family, or connecting with various community institutions such as schools, local government, or businesses, you possess multiple points and varying degrees of influence over those around you.

This is what IPV prevention work is all about: finding ways to incorporate and actively model respect and equality in our daily lives and furthermore, seeking opportunities to reinforce and saturate these messages in various community settings. Learn more about the power of engaging community partners here.

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter features new resources in the Tools Inventory that support readiness for change, collaboration, and resilience in our communities. Share your tools today!
