Do you have an idea for how to prevention sexual violence? We want to fund it!
Although it can sometimes seem too large to solve, we know that sexual violence is preventable. With multiple organizations, groups and communities directing prevention initiatives, the responsibility of preventing sexual violence is shared by the collective community. With the long-term goal of reducing sexual violence, we must focus our approaches on ways to stop sexual violence from happening in the first place.
This fund is meant to support community-based primary prevention initiatives, expand best practices, better research & evaluation, and better use of technology; assist youth groups to reach out to peers in innovative ways; support marginalized populations including African Nova Scotian, Indigenous, and LGBTQIA2S+ communities.
Let’s experiment with new ideas and methods, use technology, and try things that have not been done before. We want to expand the field of best practices for sexual violence prevention work and this is a key way to do it. Get your creative juices flowing!
