Addressing Gender Inequality: Opportunities to Empower and Support Girls
Provided by: PreventConnect
Date: November 19, 2019
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

CDC's STOP SV Technical Package includes providing opportunities to empower and support girls and women as a strategy to prevent sexual violence. Previous PreventConnect web conferences have explored strengthening economic supports for women and families as one approach to putting this strategy into practice. According to CDC, programs that produce confidence, knowledge, and leadership skills in young women, can lead to positive outcomes in multiple areas including education, employment, and community engagement. Influencing girls' education, employment, and community engagement success can decrease certain risk factors associated with sexual violence victimization.
This web conference will feature guests from two programs that engage girls and young women in activities to build confidence, knowledge, and leadership skills in their communities. Powerful Voices is a Seattle, Washington based program that "creates brave spaces with girls of color to take charge of their own power as leaders, igniting their abilities to confidently express themselves, build community, and act against injustices affecting their lives." Girls on the Run of Greater Alaska is "dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams." Join PreventConnect, Powerful Voices, and Girls on the Run of Greater Alaska for a conversation about the power and impact of supporting girls to be the leaders of today and beyond.

Youth Leadership as Violence Prevention Work
Provided by: Northwest Network
Date: November 20, 2019
Time: 6:00 am – 7:30 am ChST

As the traditional school year starts for many young people, this webinar will focus on tools to support youth leadership for youth outside of that system.

Both in practice and policy, these skills are critical in prevention work with young people and their support networks.
This webinar will 1) unpack the impacts of adultism on youth and how it affects experiences of violence and 2) walk through organizational tools for supporting youth self-determination and organizational input.

Provided by: PreventConnect
Date: November 22, 2019
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

Considering the many drivers of sexual and domestic violence, it's clear that one sector or field cannot prevent the issue alone. In 2018, the Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF) expanded its commitment to end domestic violence by focusing on root causes of violence and supporting communities in preventing domestic violence.
In this web conference, participants will hear from practitioners and advocates from two community partnerships in California, supported by BSCF, who are building their capacity to implement culturally-rooted prevention strategies. Veva Islas is a newcomer to domestic violence prevention with a long history of implementing culturally-rooted policy, systems, and environmental change strategies to promote healthy eating and active living. She will share how her Mujeres Poderosas Amorosas collaborative is developing culture-change strategies for domestic violence prevention. MaiBao Yang and Dee Lee will share how their CHAN-BOF For Peace Collaborative is using their expertise in the domestic violence field to work with the Hmong community to challenge and change harmful gender norms and promote healthy relationships.
