OCTOBER 27, 2011
I attended a meeting recently of advocates from around the country working on primary prevention and several roundtables focused on reaching out to youth. And I was surprised to learn that we have been able to undertake many more initiatives in our state than some of our colleagues across the nation.
While prevention dollars are limited, like funds for everything else, we are fortunate to have a strong, core network of professionals working to address sexual assault on Maryland’s campuses.
Nearly 100 professionals have signed-up for the Mini-college Conference series hosted by the University of Maryland and Bowie State University with support from MCASA so that they can learn more and take their knowledge back to benefit their own institutions.
And the work just begins there. Whether we work in the legal system, public safety, advocacy, or in education, we all have a role to play in ending sexual violence amongst our youth. What’s yours?
