Introduction to Structural Sexual Violence Prevention

These documents are from a workshop titled "Not Another Consent Workshop! An Introduction to Structural Sexual Violence Prevention" presented by Evelyn Smith at NASCO Institute 2017.

This workshop introduces participants to the concept of structural sexual violence prevention--that is, how to build sexual violence prevention programming that operates beyond the level of individualized education around consent and sexual health. Through activities and small-group discussion, we also identify vulnerabilities in our own communities and professional context, and develop an initial plan for how to address them. This workshop will be most useful for individuals who plan events for co-ops or who perform employee-centered jobs (such as HR), though any co-op member interested in preventing sexual violence could benefit from the discussion and activities.
