Fresh from Denver: RALIANCE Trains U.S. National Governing Bodies and U.S. Olympic Committee 

By Brian Pinero

Earlier this month in Denver, RALIANCE Chief Public Affairs Officer Kristen Houser and RALIANCE National Project Coordinator Brian Pinero trained members of the U.S. National Governing Bodies and the U.S. Olympic Committee on how to talk about sexual harassment, misconduct and abuse and contribute to a safe and respectful culture for all in the sport community 

The training took place over the course of two days at the offices of U.S. Center for SafeSport and focused on using common values in sport combined with the six messaging components from RALIANCE’s  most recent report, that could be used to help audiences understand how prevention is possible. Constructing messages in this way provides an effective way to introduce policies, training and culture change around sexual violence. Attendees also learned how to focus on prevention messages even when met with challenges. Using pre-developed scenarios and pivot phrases, the group practiced delivering and staying on message when met with a skepticism or critics.

Members of the governing bodies were also provided with a tool kit, developed by RALIANCE and U.S. Center for SafeSport. This tool kit contained examples on how to use values, pivot points, messaging components and designed awareness materials for use messaging prevention to coaches, athletes, staff and other members of the sport community.

RALIANCE publishes 2018 progress report: Ending Sexual Violence in One Generation

RALIANCE is excited to share our latest publication: “Ending Sexual Violence in One Generation: A progress report for the United States 2018.” Every year, RALIANCE chronicles the significant themes, milestones, and events related to efforts to end sexual harassment, misconduct, and abuse nationally. This year’s 2018 report offers a look back from June 2017 through May 2018, the months before and after the #MeToo movement took the nation by storm.

We’re seeing a true public reckoning with attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs that must change. Change is happening. From the news and media to advocacy, activism, and policy, this report examines where our society has made progress in the movement to end sexual violence and where more leadership and change is needed.

Prevention is possible. Survivors’ voices are powerful. Together, we will end sexual violence.
