Prevention and Education Subcommittee

The purpose of the Prevention and Education Subcommittee is to define and promote sexual violence prevention by engaging in activities to increase awareness of sexual violence and prevention strategies, and to provide support, guidance and training relating to sexual violence prevention and education.

In order to prevent sexual violence before it occurs, efforts must focus on the root causes of sexual violence. To that end, we believe that addressing the intersection of oppression with sexual violence is an essential part of prevention work.

The Prevention and Education Subcommittee serves as the statewide sexual violence prevention planning committee. In this function, we exist to implement, update, and refine the statewide sexual violence prevention plan, Recommendations to Prevent Sexual Violence in Oregon: A Plan of Action (2006).
